Product Description

The ancient craft of spinning is becoming increasingly popular with today's modern craft enthusiasts as it provides a method of creating unique, personal and unusual yarns that can be used in contemporary weaving, knitting, crocheting, needlepoint, embroidery and macramé. It is a highly creative craft, yet simple to learn, and therein lies both its fascination and challenge. The story of spinning is interwoven with the history of man. The first attempt at spinning probably consisted of twisting animal fibers with suitable plant material. Some forms of hand spinning existed as early as 15,000 years ago in Asia, and 12,000 years ago in North Africa. Many of the earliest methods and tools are still in use to this day, especially the various drop spindles, and the Indian and Navajo types of spindles. The spinning wheel itself is believed to have evolved in India 800 to 1,000 years ago.
Now you can master this timeless craft through the clear instructions and easy-to-follow directions of well-known spinning authority Carol Kroll. Drawing upon her years of valuable experience, the author shows you everything you need to know from set-up to finished product. You'll learn about the different kinds of spindles and spinning wheels, their history, development, and modern applications. Her lucid text demonstrates the proper methods of preparing the fiber for spinning including: selecting the fiber, sorting, washing, adding oil, and carding.
Whether you're a novice or an experienced hand, Carol Kroll's expert advice shows you the ins and outs of: Spinning with a Drop Spindle; Spinning on a Treadle Wheel; Finishing the Yarn; How to Shop for a Spinning Wheel; Spinning with Wool and Making the Most of Natural and Other Animal Fibers; Synthetic Fibers; Making Your Own Spindle; and The Fun of Creating Novelty Yarns.
Plus, an access and resources section with suggested further reading, supplies, services, and much more to get you started making something that is truly your own, from the first step to the last.
