Not what I expected Review by Kay in New Mexico
Rating

I've been spinning for more than 40 years, and I ordered this DVD thinking I could learn more about spinning, for example, a nice high-twist fingering yarn like Koigu KPPPM, or a fine 50/50 merino/silk laceweight like Jaggerspun Zephyr , or maybe a textured yarn like Berocco "Lago" or Elsebeth Lavold "Silky Wool."

There was no way to tell that I was ordering a DVD aimed at the beginning spinner - explaining Z and S twists, for example, and how to ply. I rated it only one star because the information I read before ordering grossly misrepresented the material actually offered. I will be returning this item.

Poor content Review by 92weavemealone
Rating

3 chapters only

I like Patsy Zawistoski and enjoy watching her other video, but this is not what I was expecting.

There are thousands of millspun yarns and it might come in handy to be able to reproduce a millspun yarn, based on a certain pattern you may have. Her method for dissecting and defining the millspun yarn is useful and well demonstrated, but the lack of content was very disappointing and not worth the price I paid.

This is no reflection on Patsy, who is an excellent spinning teacher, but on the amount of content, production and price decided upon by Interweave.
