The Spinner’s Book of Yarn Design, Techniques for Creating 80 Yarns by Sarah Anderson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

As you know, I don’t often give 5 stars… but this one deserved it and then some!

What a read! I absolutely loved every minute of it! Soooooo much information! So much new stuff I hadn’t known yet. So many things I already knew, but it never hurts to have it all in one place together!

I LOVED THE BOOK!

I think even non-spinners could get a lot of use out of this book, as it really explains fiber and it’s manipulation. Knitters and crocheters, that might not really want to spin their own yarn (although I have no idea why one wouldn’t) will still learn so much about the yarns available to them and how to use them to their full potential!

This is definitely a book any fiber enthusiast should give a try. Spinner, crocheter, knitter, it does not matter. You will fall in love with the wonderfully easily understandable instructions.
Nothing was forgotten or shortened! Everything from the way fiber behaves (drape, crimp etc.) through carding, to the best methode of spinning with projects in mind!
The information given in such an engaging manner and the tutorials/pictures help a great deal to really make the information accessible and easily understandable even to someone that has never spun before!

Well written and (specially if you are a fiber enthusiast) captivating book and personable! I missed my bus-stop, because I was too engrossed in reading it! 🙂

I wish there were more “user guides”, instruction books like this one!

Thank you so much, Mrs. Anderson, for all this work you did! It is fabulous and greatly appreciate by this fiber-holic!
