    DescriptionAre you a new or experienced spinner looking to create useful and unique yarns? "Spin Control" teaches spinners to make handspun yarns that may include the best traits of commercial yarns but always have their own personal touches. From soft, bulky singles to durable cabled yarns with terrific stitch definition and from tweedy yarns with rich texture and color to serviceable 3-ply that holds up to heavy use, the sky is the limit with this thorough resource. Teacher, store owner, and fiber source Amy King of Spunky Eclectic shares her time-tested techniques for success: how to adjust spinning wheels for best results with the least effort and how to combine techniques to create beautiful yarns. With instructions on core spinning and other less traditional techniques, she even takes the reader off the beaten path and shows them the exciting opportunities of novelty yarns. Chapters explore each type of yarn, and clear instructions with brilliant photography show how to make any type of yarn.
