The Magazine for Handspinners

PLY Magazine is all about hand spinning! Ply promises to go beyond the basics, reflect a global community, and explore this fibery passion.

Issue 27, Winter 2019

The Prep Issue

  • Have you ever wondered what fiber preparation was best for the yarn you want to spin?
  • Do you struggle with getting the fiber prep you want from handcards, drumcarders, or combs?
  • Want to know 12 ways to save a sticky or slightly felted hand-dyed braid of fiber?
Whether you are a technical spinner or an intuitive one, this issue will help you plan the perfect prep for the yarn you want or spin the best yarn from the prep you already have. It’s full of fantastic spinning and prepping advice and lots and lots of gorgeous tools.

Roy Clemes gives away all his secrets for drumcarding while Emily Wohlscheid and Gigi Matthews work with texture, fine and bold. Jackie Ottino gets gorgeous natural color for Bren Boone to spin up into a near-perfect yarn while Jill Duarte discusses color by blending and then spins stable singles. Both of those yarns are showcased in some of the most gorgeous projects PLY has ever had: The Diamonds Cowl by Tanis Gray and the Kaleidoscope Cardi by Amy Christoffers.

And that’s not all! There’s wise words from Stephenie Gaustad (plus a profile of that giant of spinning); galleries featuring different fiber preparations; secrets for dizzing; prepping your wheel;  saving a braid; and saving a sheep on the edge — Shetland! It’s a pretty wonderful issue, don’t miss it.
