Book Review: Spinning in the Old Way

I ordered this book, Spinning in the Old Way, about a year and a half ago.  It was highly recommended to me when I was learned to spin.  But by the time I got around to ordering the book , I had advanced beyond the scope of the book.  It is fantastic for beginners.  If you want to get a new spinner a gift, I would recommend this book along with a basic spindle and some fiber.  I prefer Merino fiber, which is what I leaded to spin with. I've been told it's better to choose a longer staple wool, but I loved the softness of the Merino.  If the spinner has experience, you may want to choose a book that goes a little more in depth.  General Rating: 4 Thumbs Up.
