Spin Art: Mastering the Craft of Spinning Textured Yarn

Spin Art: Mastering the Craft of Spinning Textured Yarn

Reviewed by Caitlin Eaton, Editor for AllFreeKnitting


Any knitter who spins their own yarn knows there's a definite art to it.  Depending on your tension and how you draft, you'll be able to transform roving into beautiful fiber that's uniquely you.   In Jacy Bogg's debut book, Spin Art: Mastering the Craft of Spinning Textured Yarn, spinners will learn how to take their craft to the next level, all inside the comforts of their own home.

Beginning with the basics - types of fibers, knowing how to twist, how to properly draft - Boggs moves on to show knitters how to infuse all sorts of exciting shapes and twists into their fiber.  Learn how to create eye-catching single and plied spun yarns with tactics including wraps, beehives, bumps, racing stripes, loops, bubblewrap and more.

While this book was intended for those who already know how to spin, if you have an interest in spinning at all, I highly recommend it.   In addition to including detailed technical instruction along with step-by-step photos, this book also includes an instructional DVD.  Thanks to Spin Art, every spinner and spinning enthusiast can step up their game with this quality, instructional publication.
