It's time to look beyond wool, with The Practical Spinner's Guide: Rare Luxury Fibers!

The go-to expert for fiber artists, Judith MacKenzie shares insights into working with uncommon (but readily available) luxury downs in this comprehensive, yet practical, guide for today's spinners. With her natural voice for story telling that is both engaging and informative, she discusses the history of each of these downs, how they are used today, characteristics unique to each, and where to find them. She also dives deep into the specific spinning techniques for each fiber, knitting and weaving rare fibers, and dying them once spun.

From angora to bison, camel to cashmere, there's a whole world of rare luxury fibers just waiting to be spun!
