Interview With Beth Smith – Author of The Spinner’s Book of Fleece

Recently I had the pleasure to sit down with Beth Smith, the author of The Spinner’s Book of Fleece, and ask her a bunch of questions. Beth Smith is an accomplished spinner who has written many articles and now a fantastic resource book for every spinner. Her book takes the reader on a tour through different breeds and types of wool, and shows her recommendations on how to process each kind. It’s full of examples and beautiful photography.

Join me as I ask Beth questions in this interview where we cover more than her book, and delve into some harder questions like “What is your favorite ply?”
