- disappointing Review by Pippy
The wheel is noisy, the item I want to see is sometimes just out of shot. I thought I was going to find out about spinning silk. Sara tells us about her spinning for her weaving. She only likes spinning prepared fibers - not hankies or caps. She says she is not the best person to give opinions on a couple of things. She repeats herself and made a mistake when dying the knitted sample. For a video I would expect that section to be edited out and re filmed.
Sara's perfect fiber is alpaca silk mix.
I was looking forward to her new book - but probably won't give it a look in after watching this video.
Sorry Sara - I love your weavings and you spin silk wonderfully - this video is just not what I expected.

- Inspiring but limited Review by Maggie
Sara is spinning silk to produce yarn for her own weaving style. This is not made entirely clear either in the description of the product or on the DVD. This disappointed me and may well others who are looking for more comprehensive information about spinning silk.

- Good information for weavers and dyers of silk not so much for spinning Review by Cherie
I enjoyed the review of the different types of silk available but was disappointed on instructions to spin fiber. What I got from this is to spin with lots of twist and thinly. Spinning over the fold is not for me which is how the instructor prefers to spin. I'm not a weaver and would have preferred more information on spinning for knitting than was given too.

- It's all here . . . Review by Cheri
Sara has managed to pack this video with years of experience in silk and then she adds more. I can't think of a thing I would ask her to gain more information. I am very happy that I made this purchase.

- Poor Quality Review by Dawn
Main complaint: Can't hear her talking at times due to LOUD clacking wheel.
Camera angles were very off at times.
Felt like she was too rushed, as it was it was difficult to hear her anyway with the loud wheel so another impediment was disappointing.
