Title: In a Spin: Handspun Yarn Design and Technique

Author: Pat Old

"In a Spin" is Pat's first book and can be decribed as a journey with her as she explores yarn design. The book has been arranged as a series of projects with the exphasis of each project more on technique rather than the reproduction of the final item. Thanks to Pat's unique style, it has a distinctive New Zealand slant (and includes translations!) and gives fun insights into this country. There is something for everyone and contains information on many subjects including choosing fleeces and discussions on fibre tools.It has been beautifully presented with many colour photos so is just as suited to be a coffee table book as a reference text. We at Majacraft are proud to be sole distributors for 'In a Spin' and recommend it for anyone wishing to develop their spinning knowledge and skill.
