Spinning Around is wall to wall information. The first section covers spinning equipment--how it works and explains the differences in drive systems. There is great in-depth information about how to choose a fleece, washing and processing. Jenny Bakriges' techniques are very useable and approachable. She shows how to use handcards, pickers, combs, flickers and dog rakes. And then you get into the spinning instruction. All of the major drafting techniques are covered with great photos. Then we get to plying and balanced yarn discussions and plying techniques on a wheel and spindle as well as a very nice discussion about S and Z . That is just in the 1st section.The dyeing section is lovely with lots of great tips and good information about natural dyeing as well as some information about setting up a dye studio. Finally--the patterns. These are patterns written the way a spinner wants--with photos of the original fibers and then photos of the spun and dyed yarns and with wraps per inch and gauge included as well as spinning technique used for the sample. --The Spinning Loft
