NEW BOOK


HAND SPINNING COTTON by Harry & Olive Linder

Updated by Joan S. Ruane 2013

 

Hand Spinning Cotton Book

    $19.95 - FREE SHIPPING!

     

    Since its first publication in 1977, this book has been the definitive work on cotton spinning. It has provided cotton spinners with the most in-depth information possible and kindled a new still-growing interest in spinning this fascinating and ancient fiber.

    I am thrilled that the Linder family asked me to update Harry & Olive's wonderful work, which was my own inspiration for finding a life-long passion in learning about cotton and its possibilities for our modern lives.

    This edition of "Hand Spinning Cotton" contains all the original texts and drawings from the 1977 edition but has been updated to reflect 21st century advances in both equipment, fiber availability and spinning techniques.
