Spinning Designer Yarns

Spinning Designer Yarns

By Diane Varney

Few things are as satisfying as creating the perfect yarn for a special project. This book, first printed by Interweave Press in 1987, leads the new or intermediate spinner gently into the world of super-soft luxury fibers, textured effects, and the dyepot’s miracles. Learn to apply dye to fibers in new and exciting ways, predict how novelty yarns will look in finished fabrics, blend fibers for color and texture effects, and spin singles and plied yarns in ways that will put more zip in your spinning—and your weaving, knitting, and crocheting. Corespun, bouclé, snarl, knotted, and tufted yarns will become part of your spinning repertoire, and you’ll rediscover the excitement of spinning all over again.

Diane Varney is an author and artist of many talents including spinning, painting, and jewelry- and pottery-making. Her current artistic focus is on making colorful dinnerware. She divides her time between homes in Baja California, Mexico, and the San Francisco area.
