Comments about Intentional Spinner with DVD:
The Intentional Spinner is a fantastic and detailed introduction to the world of fibers and spinning techniques for anyone with an interest in handspinning their own yarn. Grounded in history and deep experience, it includes an instructional DVD for spinners who are just getting started, as well as advanced techniques for experienced spinners and a great explanation of often multilayered terminology that is clear, easy to read and very practically helpful as you perfect your skills. One of my favorite spinning reference books, especially for the amazing Worsted vs Woolen chart! If you want to understand better how your yarns will behave as finished fabric, Judith can help!
