Spinning Wool teaches spinners to analyse fleeces and to get the best from their wheels. The book is written from the spinner's point of view, and provides information about wool that would only previously have been found in farming manuals. The book is sensitive to the rising surge in popularity of weaving, and explores a wide range of what can be produced from spinning, as well as what is happening in the spinning process and what kinds of raw materials can be incorporated into yarns. This book covers all the basics as well as building up to more advanced spinning techniques. Alongside the step-by-step yarn designs and the section on knitting and weaving projects, this book is perfect for anyone wanting to delve into the world of spinning.Revue de presse :
Thoroughly researched and written from experience - concise, clear and informative. This is just what I'd expect and would want to offer for the benefit of a new spinner moving on 'beyond the basics' … There is a great deal in this one book - I thought it rather expensive until I realised how much is included, and how well written it is. --Yarn Maker
Well presented throughout with clear colour photos … the book will make a great addition to any spinner's library --Journal for Weavers, Spinners and Dyers

Summary: Spinning has changed hugely since its upsurge in popularity in the 1970s. These days spinners want to know more than just how to spin an adequate yarn: they want to extend the range of yarns they can produce, to understand what is happening as they spin, and to learn about the raw materials they are working with. The first edition of this book gave spinners, for the first time, a fully illustrated manual that provided straightforward, authoritative advice and information on their craft, while spinning wheel manufacturers developed wheels to meet the changing needs of spinners. This revised and updated edition, now in full color, is intended for spinners who have mastered the basic spinning techniques explored in the author's The Ashford Book of Spinning . It builds on those basics to encourage spinners to extend their skills and to teach them how to analyze fleeces with their end purpose in mind, and to help them get the best out of their spinning wheels. Part One covers what spinners need to know about wool and types of wool, analysis of a fleece, and how to store and prepare it for spinning. The chapter on wool types has been updated, with completely new samples and photographs. Part Two includes information on many of the new spinning wheels currently available. The yarn design section continues to provide thorough coverage with step-by-step instructions and photographs of the process of spinning yarns to a predetermined size and twist count, as well as detailed explanations of spinning methods, relating this information back to the properties of the chosen fleece. Finally, there are many new projects, all illustrated with full instructions, suggesting interesting and innovative ways to weave, knit or crochet your beautiful, newly spun yarn. Spinning Wool--Beyond the Basics is intended for spinners who have mastered the basic spinning techniques and will build on those basics to further expand their spinning skills. This new edition is organized in four sections--wool, spinning wheels (with up-to-date information), yarn designs featuring new color photos, and seven new projects.
