Overview


For spinners and weavers alike! Get in-depth information on fiber properties and color choices, as well as beautifully photographed samples.

Spin to Weave is not simply a how-to-spin book, but a how-to-spin-exactly-what-you-want book. Weavers who spin their own yarns have the ability to choose fiber type, method of twist insertion (woolen, worsted), twist amount and/or direction, finishing methods, and grist.

Author Sara Lamb focuses on the process of spinning for specific results, providing detailed instructions, a sampling of projects, variations, and a gallery of pieces by other spinners.

Sara takes the reader to the very source of woven fabric- introducing the thought processes and concepts related to choosing fibers and how to spin them with finished fabric in mind.
