Taking the Measure of Handspun Yarn eBook
The primary joy of spinning for many of us is in the act itself. But there is also great pleasure and satisfaction in taking the yarns we create to their conclusion in well-designed, well-made fabrics. More often than not, this means understanding the properties of our yarns - their twist, their grist, their yards per pound - and how these relate to the finished objects we have in mind. In this important collection of articles from out-of-print issues of Spin-Off, Rita Buchanan provides the methods, tools, and rationale we need to understand our yarns in the way any fine craftsman seeks to understand his or her materials. They bring together the hand and mind in ways that can only help us be better spinners.
