Different from other spinning books, Yarnitecture is specially written for knitters who want to spin their own custom designed yarn to fit their project, beginning with a beautifully prepared fleece batt. Readers will learn how to match yarns with knitting patterns and how to re-create a commercial yarn, as well as how to combine commercial and hand spun yarns in a single project. Full colour photographs illustrate the planning process, fiber preparations, specific spinning and plying techniques, and stress free ways of succeeding with colours and colour blending. Features 15 knitting patterns by prominent knitwear designers, including sweaters, socks, shawls, and accessories; projects are "aspirational but not out of reach".

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Jillian Moreno's exuberant and exhaustive process has resulted in an enviable depth of knowledge about how to turn pretty dyed fibers into beautiful finished yarns and, ultimately, knitted projects. In Yarnitecture, she shares her secrets, guiding our hands and feet so we can achieve the results we dream of."
-- Amy Singer, founder and editor, Knitty.com

"Jillian Moreno is fun, colorful, and richly textured, with a strong backbone of spinning skills and a gift for explaining them. Yarnitecture captures the best qualities of a terrific spinner."
-- Anne Merrow, editor, Spin-Off magazine

"Every knitting spinner and every spinning knitter will want this book. Jillian provides all of the steps necessary to give them the courage to move forward with determination and use their handspun yarns with confidence."
-- Beth Smith, author of Spinner's Guide to Fleece and How to Spin

"Jillian doesn't tell you how yarn should be spun, she gives you information on how it can be spun. With clear and thoughtful text, tons of samples, skeins and swatches, she gives you the knowledge to design the best yarn for your projects."
-- Maggie Casey, author of Start Spinning and co-owner of Shuttles, Spindles and Skeins

"This book gives spinners the tools they need to become architects of their own yarns and make true design choices."
-- Esther Rodgers, JazzTurtle Creations

"It's a happy day when a book appears and we can't stifle the 'wows.' As in wow, that's some righteous handspun. Wow, look at that cool cardigan. Or wow, that Jillian Moreno knows her merino."-- Vogue Knitting
