Spinning Books and Magazines
|Books aren’t a replacement for a hands-on mentor, but they sure do help. There aren’t many spinning books available compared to knitting, for instance. It is not a top selling topic in the publishing world for some reason! Though the shelf space needed to store them is small, there are plenty of spinning books to help start or continue your spinning adventure. We like to think of spinners as explorers: each fleece is different, every year. There is even variation within a fleece. A never-ending world to be explored. These are some of our favorite spinning books, but we have many more in stock.
|The Intentional Spinner by Judith Mackenzie McCuin
This book is targeted at intermediate to experienced level spinners and is a must-read. No matter what kind of spinner you are, you’ll learn something on practically every page of this book.
|Spin It by Lee Raven
A small book, but full of good information for the new spinner.
|Spinning Wool Beyond the Basics by Anne Field
This book was out of print for a while, but it back revised and updated. Anne’s technical approach is helpful for spinners who want to know more about the “why” of spinning.
