Do you wonder what fabric type is best for the yarns you create?
This issue can help address all those questions and more. It’s full of sound spinning advice and lots and lots of beauty. Let the words of Judith MacKenzie, Stephenie Gaustad, and Sarah Swett inspire you while Michelle Boyd, Beth Smith, Jillian Moreno, and James Perry (plus more) get serious with how to spin for the cloth you want. You’ll read about why your cloth might turn out too heavy, how color changes in different cloth types, and how fiber, prep, and twist impact your final cloth.
