This is a really useful book for anyone who wants to think more about what they’re spinning for and how to make the yarn they want. I’m a bit of a one trick pony and consistently spin ‘about fingering’ weight yarn. There are some useful tips in this about ways to shake things up a bit if you’re in a rut or if you just haven’t thought of different approaches.

The chapters I found most useful were the ones dealing with the different ways to spin coloured braids to achieve different effects, and the one on being a more technical spinner thinking about grist, twists per inch etc. There’s a lot in here to either dip into or it’s a fascinating quick read cover to cover. There are also twelve patterns with tips for spinning the yarn for each one.

Although aimed at wheel spinners, and there is a section exploring different wheel set ups, I think there is a lot in here that would be useful to spindle spinners in terms of fibre prep, drafting, working with colour/ply etc. It does mostly deal with traditional yarns, there isn’t anything here really on art yarn, although it is touched on if a few places.

Overall this is a great book and although some of it won’t be particularly new to experienced spinners I think it has enough in it to be of interest to beginners and experienced alike, ( )

I skim-read* this one as a library book, and have added it to my wish-list so that I can add it to my permanent collection. There are some patterns I want to make, but more importantly some spinning techniques that I want to remember.

* Most of what I read was the technical part of how the spinning method changes the resulting yarn; most of what I skimmed was the cute-but-not-actually-spinning metaphor part that seems meant to connect with people who want a story to go with their spinning. (Note: the book needs this part to make it cohesive and useful to the most people. But it wasn't what I needed to read at the time in order to improve my color-handling when I spin yarn.) ( )

I read this in German and have asked my bookstore to order it for me in English.

This is a very useful book for spinners who want to develop ways of spinning different yarns. As usual, it is aimed at those who spin on a wheel and is not as useful for those like me who spindle. Still, I think it will help.

The German translation is well done, but the German title is very uncreative compared to the English. Once I have the English copy, I will borrow the German again to copy the metric measurements in, as the English doesn't seem to include them. ( )

This beautiful book begins with a gorgeous cover, and is filled with photos of handspun yarn and various items knitted from handspun yarn.

The book begins with the usual introductions, and of course talks about the various types of wools. Naturally you'd expect that in any handspinning book. The book also talks about spinning with intention, which I think made some interesting points. The book also covers preparing fiber for spinning, and talks about the importance of twist, types of plying, finding balance, etc; again, with photos that can't help but inspire you (and makes me wish I was a much better spinner, with an actual spinning wheel and not just a hand spindle!)

Then there's a lot of information about color, color theory, etc., followed by finishing your yarn.

Lastly, there's a small, but nice, section of patterns specific to handspun yarn, by well known designers.

All in all, I think this is a must for any hand-spinners library, especially those that may not be spinning for a long time.

Like me you probably have whole shelves devoted to, and have read many books about, spinning, yarn, and wool from the likes of Alden Amos, Carol Ekarius, Judith MacKenzie McCuin, Clara Parkes, and Deborah Robson among many others (I just took a quick sampling of my bookshelf, I can’t list everyone), but you haven’t quite figured out how to take all that knowledge and improve the yarn you spin. Yarnitecture is your answer.

Moreno builds on her extensive experience as a knitter and spinner and has figured out a way to break down all the parts of making a yarn in a way that makes sense and will aid the reader in producing the yarn they want to spin. This isn’t a book for those who have never picked up a spindle or sat at a wheel. It’s perfect for me as I already keep a notebook (very useful for my yarn vision) and want to move out of what I’ll call my spinning rut. Several years ago my goal was to figure out how to spin a consistent yarn of a certain size. I can. I now almost always prepare, draft, and spin my fiber the same way braid after braid.

Organized in seven sections, grouped and named inspired by phases encountered when building a house (such as foundation, frame, and paint), Moreno has written a remarkable book. I took copious notes each time I’ve read my eARC copy. I am incorporating the lessons and tips I’ve picked up into my spinning and I see a positive result in my spinning.

While many experienced spinners will likely think they should skip straight to the chapter of what’s currently causing them trouble, I urge at least one complete cover to cover read. Yes, I know my notebook about my spinning isn’t unique, but I like Moreno’s way to keep quick notes with her samples and spun yarns. It’s also nice to read suggestions on what to record, and why.

The photos of fiber preparations and clarifying woolen vs worsted and top vs roving should be required reading for all spinners and those who write product descriptions. I’m sure I’ve read it a zillion times before. I think it’s finally beginning to stick.

All of the other sections from drafting, plying, color, to finishing and actual knitting are delightful and full of tips. When two (or more) techniques are compared, I enjoyed the clear photographs to help further explain what was going on and why. The included designs are both a range of styles and fibers and a great starting point for taking the lessons in the book and turning them into something that can be knitted and not just another pretty skein of handspun that sits in a basket to be admired. I liked that notes were included from the spinner of the yarn of things they found difficult or helpful.

I recommend this to every spinning knitter. I’m eager for a time machine so I can give it to my past self and prevent many hours of spinning frustration.

I received an eARC of this title from NetGalley in exchange for a review. The FTC wants you to know. ( )
