This is a workbook for anyone interested in spinning cotton or who wants to learn more about cotton and how to card, spin and ply cotton fiber.

The book is spiral bound so it will lay flat beside you. Photos are included along with the instructions, however after each technique Joan has a YouTube that she has prepared for you so you can see her actually doing the technique described in the work book.

Hand Spinning Cotton Book

    $19.95 - FREE SHIPPING (within continential U.S.)!


    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.
