Product Details


“A good introduction for those beginning to explore spinning, and a comprehensive guide to technique for experienced spindlers.” – Library Journal

“I have a decent assortment of spinning books, including some excellent ones that focus on spindles, but this book blows them away.” –

“A great choice for those new to spinning and those who might feel cheated because their budget–or their living arrangements–make a wheel an impossibility.” – Guide to Knitting

“Be prepared to have cliched thoughts about spindles and spinning on spindles blasted out of the water. Abby Franquemont has given spinners a encyclopedic gift on the topic of spindles. In a single volume, she will change the way you look at, think about and use…spindles.” –

“The instructions are very well done, nothing is rushed and there are good photos of everything you need. I’d happily recommend this to a beginner.” – YarnMaker

Respect the Spindle is really lovely. It’s perfect if you’ve always wanted to spin but were intimidated by spinning wheels because it makes the whole process a lot more elemental. Perfect for even the novice spinner!” – The Purl Bee

“Abby Franquemont says spinning with a spindle can get you any kind of yarn you want; a spinning wheel never needs to be in your house if you don’t want it. She makes this argument–and proves the point nicely–in her book Respect the Spindle.” –

“It’s a comprehensive guide to using a drop spindle and it starts at the very beginning, which is perfect for a total novice like me.” – Canadian Living craft blog
