The first book of its kind to show a single painted top spun up in 20+ different combinations.
Have you ever tried spinning painted top or rovings only to be disappointed with the color outcomes in your yarns or finished projects?
Alanna Wilcox will clearly and artfully walk you through understanding color theory making it less intimidating for both novice and expert spinners alike.
Never before has a book presented the same dyed top worked up into 20+ different approaches accompanied by easy to follow directions so you can see how the techniques look in both a skein and a knitted swatch. Plus there are photos of finished products accompanying the techniques to make envisioning the spinning application even easier.
After reading this book you will be inspired to delve into your stash with a new eye and excitement for color in your spinning.
“It’s incredible; I haven’t seen anyone go as thoroughly and as methodically into spinning differently dyed fiber and how to spin the differently dyed fiber to get what you want.If you are a spinner, this book is a must-have. I’ve never seen such a marvelously thorough and original book on spinning from dyed top before; it should be a staple of all spinner’s reference libraries.”
“What a TERRIFIC job you did with this book! Beyond belief!!! This color work needs to be put on every spinner’s plate. With all the fantastic Indie dyers out there now you have addressed a topic that should and now has been addressed! And very well done!”
