A Word From the Author:

"We're so lucky – we live right in the middle of a textile revolution. [Spinners] have learned one type of fiber really well, and it was the fiber that was available to them. But now we have contact all over the world almost instantly." — Judith MacKenzie

“I love all of the Judith Mackenzie videos, and this one was just as wonderful as they always are. There is a wealth of information in this in-depth look at luxury fibers.” - Suzanne Reyes

So pleasant to watch! Great info.

“Learning spinning from Judith MacKenzie videos is VERY similar to exploring painting with Bob Ross videos. She communicates encouragement to me as a relative beginner, but I’m sure I’ll still get value re-watching this a few years in the future. She’s got the most calm voice. It reminds me so much of my fashion designer grandmother when she’d teach me at her pattern table or sewing machine. . . .” - Jamie Gray Eakin

Wonderful, so well done.

“I have learned so much. I have pages of notes and need to review the video once more. I am so grateful for such excellent information available in my home [and] can't wait to start spinning. Thank you!!” - Martha Yanuszeski
