Handspinner's Workbook: Fancy Yarns

Mabel Ross is well known for publishing the Essentials of Handspinning. In this book, she takes the handspinner to the novelty yarn level, saying “Plain handspun yarn or garments made from it hardly attact sufficient finiancial reward to compensate for the time taken to make them, but when a little novelty yarn is introduced skilfully, the result can be extremely attractive, exceptional, unique, and the garment commands a fairer price. Such yarns can be handspun using your own selection of colours to blend or contrast with some plain handspun or commercial yarn.”
