Spinning and Spinning Wheels Paperback

Part of the Shire Library series


"Spinning and Spinning Wheels" traces the evolution of the ancient skill of spinning, from the early spindle, through the introduction of the wool and the flax wheel, to the numerous variations of the wheel in Europe and North America.

The author surveys these different models and explains the principles of spinning that have essentially remained the same for generations.

Providing insight into the mechanics of the U-flyer and the tools and accessories used in the craft, this volume is a timeless and valuable source of information to craftsmen, collectors and historians.
