Cotton-Spring 16


Cotton is a giant topic to tackle, yet tackle it we did. Perhaps our most beautiful issue to date, it’s a feast for your eyes, as well. With help from Joan Ruane, we found some of the most important voices in cotton spinning , your brain will be brimming with things you didn’t even know you wanted to learn but will be so glad you did. Whether you’re new to cotton or spin it daily, you’ll find this issue fascinating and full. We cover beginner and advanced techniques for spinning cotton (on wheels, spindles, and charkas); we talk about prepping punis and blending; dyeing cotton will be de-mystified; we’ll marvel as the Sprang shirt is recreated; and we’ll take a bit of time to wax poetically about this simple and complex fiber. Don’t miss this issue!
