Description
 
Want to learn how to spin the cool, funky art yarns found in knitting boutiques (at boutique prices) or on handspun websites in limited-edition amounts? Popular spinner Symeon North demonstrates how to spin unique and creative art yarns, accompanied by clear step-by-step photography that explains each technique in Get Spun.

Taking the craft beyond intriguing but often nonfunctional yarns that are often labeled "art yarns," Get Spun teaches the reader to create useful yarns with structure and balance. By combining this range of skills with an unlimited range of fiber possibilities,knitters and fiber artisans can not only create the yarn of their dreams, they can re-create it and use it for their fiber-art projects.

Intended for the advanced beginner to intermediate spinner, this book explores the spinning fundamentals, techniques for spinning wool and silk, spinning with nontraditional materials (fabric, silk cocoons), introducing add-ins (beads, locks, etc.), and creating exciting plying effects. Nearly all of the colorways featured in Symeon's yarns are created by hand-dyeing or blending. In addition to the spinning techniques, Symeon will share techniques for easy home dyeing and using a drumcarder to blend colors and fibers.
