After the success of online craft communities such as Etsy and Ravelry, enthusiastic crafters are now looking for a new challenge in yarn design. Whereas most books cover either spinning or dyeing, Spinning and Dyeing Yarn covers both subjects in detail with clear, practical instructions and eye-catching photographs. The book introduces readers to essential techniques such as drop spindle and wheel spinning. Additionally, the book discusses fibre preparation methods such as drafting, plying, carding and combing, and considers the many different fibres available, from wool and cotton to alpaca and mohair. In addition to spinning styles, the book also explores a wide variety of dyeing methods and guides readers to create their own unique yarn. Advice from professional yarn designers peppered throughout each chapter provides readers with invaluable tips to improve their technique. The book offers a highly useful 'Going Pro' section, packed with advice from contemporary yarn designers to aspiring home spinners on how to turn your passion into your profession. Completing the package is a luscious gallery of yarn to whet the readers' creative appetite.
