In the Acknowledgement section, the author mentions that friends say, “You should write a book about spinning” Did she ever!

What a gorgeous book! Almost every page has either a color photo or a graphic – often multiple photos to reinforce the concepts that the author discusses in the text.

This 135 page book has an Introduction which is followed by 3 main sections/ units, supported by their various sub-sections/ chapters and delves into problem-solving throughout:
I. Know about Spindles:
A. Choosing a Spindle
B. The Science of Spindles
C. What about the Wheel?

II. Spinning on a Spindle
A. Starting to Spin
B. Fine-Tuning Your Yarn
C. Getting More Done
D. Which Spindle When
E. Plying
F. Living with Spindles

II. Spindle-spun Projects

Following these are 2 final section: Resources and the Index.

I both hand knit (HK) and machine knit (MK); I also crochet and weave on a tabletop loom, so I already deal with yarn during the pre-project stage of making something: I have several yarn winders (Passap) for my knitting machines, and I own a Strauch (made in USA) yarn winder which winds at an amazing rate in amazingly large balls/ cakes. (https://www.amazon.com/BW-Strauch-Jumbo-Ball-Winder/dp/B0108OZRRS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1519591840&sr=8-1&keywords=strauch+ball+winder Strauch Jumbo Ball Winder ). I use this winder religiously and almost get into a state of zen while using it because of the soothing, rhythmic, circular motions that it employs while winding yarn.

I bought this book, Respect the Spindle, in order to increase my yarn knowledge skill sets because spinning yarn on spindles is not easy even though it seems to be so.

To build her own yarn skillsets, the author began her spinning journey in the Andes in Peru as a child.

In the book, I also liked that she looked at various spindles from various cultures: Turkish, Russian, and Navajo (encompassing its uses in the ME, Asia and the US Southwest). It was interesting to see the similarities and differences of the spindles and how yarn is spun with these devices.

We have 2 American Eskimo dogs, and their double-coated fir, during their daily brushings, might make some lovely yarn.

A book on making yarn from dog hair will be the next book that I buy to use in my knitting and tabletop loom weaving.

This is a ‘have-to-have’ book for every person who deals with fiber arts and wants to make their own yarn.

It has shown me all I need to know about using the spindle. And I do respect the spindle now. I've been hung up over getting a spinning wheel, which are really expensive, thinking that's the only way to properly spin yarn. Now I know I can do so with my spindle.

I've never spun before, and this was the first book that I purchased in order to start that adventure. Abby's name was recommended to me first though by a couple friends of mine whom have been spinning for awhile themselves, and their recommendation was excellent. I haven't quite finished the book yet, but it is so wonderful and full of very valuable information on not only how to spin, but some of the science and history behind it as well. It's an excellent read and one I recommend for everyone starting to spin!
Also recommend checking out some of her videos on youtube, as they are super helpful in actually seeing some of the techniques and such that she talks about in her book, in a real demonstration.

I'm just learning hand spindling, and this book is a wonderful accompaniment. It is beautiful to look at, has good information on how to spin with various techniques and tools, and is full of fascinating history and lore from various spinning traditions around the world. Four stars because it is hard to learn a physical skill like spinning from a book. Not really the book's fault, but if you are trying to learn hand spindling from scratch I recommend that you buy it, read it for background, then watch some of the author's excellent video tutorials on YouTube. The combination can't be beat!

I love spinning on my wheel, but for travel I use a drop-spindle. How nice to have the understanding of how and why this works so I can spin satisfying yarn and transfer the understanding to my work on the wheel. Excellent teaching/learning guide. And it reminds you you're working at a craft that was in use a couple millennia BCE.

Fantastic book for anyone considering the craft, or like myself, already using a spindle as their only means of spinning. Comprehensive and well researched, the author draws from her experience of spinning beginning at the age of six. Beautiful photos of spindles and fiber, add the sexy factor to something not immediately thought of as sexy;), and add to the inspiration I often look for to get my artistic juices flowing. I can't see anyone even slightly interested in the craft not enjoying this book. Ty for this book, and a pleasant transaction.

Just the thing for a new spindler. I actually sold my wheel a while back---never could get happy with it. But to my surprise, I find spinning on a spindle is much easier and more pleasant. This book concentrates on using spindles instead of assuming you'd rather be spinning on a wheel, a refreshing change from most other "how-to" spinning books.
I started spinning with a drop spindle and I learned with this book in hand. In fact, I used this book along with Ms. Franquemont's "Respect the Spindle" DVD to help me get advanced enough to enter handspun items in our weaver's show. (And I won Best Novice, too.) This book is a starting place as well as a reference book which will show you the variety of spindles that today's spinner can use. You may spin on a wheel but you should know how to drop spin, too, because drop spindles allow you to spin ANYWHERE at ANYTIME. Let's face it, you can't take your spinning wheel to your doctor's appointment but you can take your drop spindle and spin the time away
