Hand Spun contains a collection of never-before-published spinning techniques along with interesting, creative, hip projects. The essential momentum behind this book is to satisfy fans of the author's first two books in their desire for new materials to learn. As Intertwined becomes more well-known, these handspun styles are flooding the internet craft community. Hand Spun offers fresh, new, and exciting material for these spinners to move on to. Where Handspun Revolution, the author's first book, was the spark that ignited the genre of Art-yarn, and Intertwined is considered the bible of creative spinning, Handspun builds upon the now common knowledge of novelty spinning, digging deeper into the traditional underbelly of spinning, not as a means to teach traditional techniques, but rather as a way of turning very traditional forms inside out: Using time-tested techniques to deliver cutting-edge forms. This book also covers fiber-preparation processes, from scouring raw fleece to several carding techniques.

Ever wondered what can be made with fluffy wooltops, wools and yarns? This new book from Gillian Harris, owner of the Fluffatorium, has all the answers! Wooltops are essentially ‘unspun’ wool that have been processed into long fluffy lengths. It’s the stuff you use when you spin yarn, and it’s also the stuff that is used for felting, plus you can use it to weave with, or for extreme knitting and giant crochet too. It is light and woolly and very very fluffy! A selection of other fibres and yarns are used in some of the projects. These start life as fluffy wooltops, but have been processed a little bit more and may have been spun and plied into different sorts of yarns. Choose favourite colours of 'fluff' and learn how to make pompoms, brooches, pictures, lampshades, cushions and more. Use the fluff as it is or learn how to transform it by wetfelting, needlefelting, weaving, knitting or crocheting. Spin your own art yarn too, using a simple drop spindle. Readers will get hooked into Gillian's vibrant fluffy world and begin crafting lots of lovely, simple, easy-to-make projects.
