--------------------------------------------

Batts are the showgirls of the fibre world. They seduce you with their irresistible colour and texture. You probably have a growing collection of them, each more beautiful than the last.

But, you're too nervous to spin them. You won't want to ruin them.

However, you can easily spin your beloved batts into equally stunning yarns once you learn to approach the batt as a collaboration with the carder - rather than feeling controlled by her choices.

BATT is a spinning guidebook designed to give you the techniques, inspiration and permission you need to fearlessly spin the yarns you want from the batts you love.

--------------------------------------------

"The book is GORGEOUS. I love how you're approaching it from the perspective of the fibre. It's super thorough and I love that they are written for both "art yarn" spinners and "traditional" spinners points of view. Excellent work." - Ashley Martineau

"Lovely crisp book. Such a creative and playful way to approach spinning. Not only does she provide ideas but inspires you to be spontaneous while spinning." - Pyskieled

"Great as a reference, really pretty images and an interesting read diving further into techniques." - Petra

--------------------------------------------

BATT isn't a spinning textbook, it's 110+ pages of vivid photography, detailed step by step written instructions and hundreds of unique variations.

Each technique is specifically chosen because of it's ability to result in thousands of different outcomes with even the smallest tweak. Techniques can be layered, implemented on other fibres, spun thick and thin, the possibilities are endless.

You will learn:

- How colour presents in your yarn, how to self-stripe, how to fractal, how to a gradient, etc.

- How texture presents in your yarn, how to texture gradient, how to shrink texture, etc.

- How to blend and combine colour without entering the "technicolour granny" zone.

- It's okay to ditch measurements and weights.

- How to better make the fibre in your hands become the yarn in your mind's eye.

- How to collaborate with the carder rather than let her choices control yours.

--------------------------------------------

"Texture. I have focused so long on smoooooth yarn that the idea of lumps and bumps is a little daunting. After reading this book (end to end in one sitting) I am feeling the urge to buy some crazy looking art yarn batt and spin something wild and amazing." - Lenora

"Incredibly informative! The information is clear and the graphics are amazing! Looking forward to the dyeing book!" - Aetara

--------------------------------------------

Each technique is broken down into the six sections that make it easy to follow step by step at the wheel and on the go (and printer friendly!).

-What is this technique?
-What type of fibre is best suited to this technique?
-How do you prep it?
-How do you spin it?
-What are some variations of this technique I could try?
-What are some ways I could use this yarn?

"BATT is like the missing link, I always have problems getting exactly what I want when it comes to handspinning. Thank you, you have opened up a door with your books." - Priscilla

"Absolutely stunning, beautiful books, awesome pictures. I find a new breath on my spinning with this very interesting spinning and prep fiber approche." - Chloe

--------------------------------------------

Physical Book Specs:

This is a 8.5 x 11 physical book. The text is larger scale for easy reading.

You will receive the book in the mail AND a digital copy of the book :)
