Spinners have been creating beautiful yarns from wool for thousands of years, but we still have unanswered questions. How do you choose a fleece? Should you process it by hand or send it to a mill? What kind of prepared fibers are out there and what should you do with them? Fiber artist and shepherdess Kate Larson answers these and many other questions. Whether you're working with fleeces sheared from your own flock or spinning indie-dyed fibers, you'll find a wealth of useful, valuable and practical information in this book.
