The Joy of Spinning


More than a simple how-to, this deliciously '70s copy of The Joy of Spinning quite literally aims to communicate the true pleasure that is creating thread or yarn. Through her own spinning discovery story, Kluger imbues a sense of excited confidence within the reader, and provides guidance for the entire process from selecting and/or restoring a spinning wheel, carding a variety of plant and animal fibers, and how to dye and craft garments and other useful textiles.

Suitable for the hobbyist and more committed craftsperson alike.
