Winter 2021: The Head & Hands Issue
- It’s cold outside, what are the best fibers and yarn structures to keep your head and hands warm?
- Do you want to know how to spin a bulky and warm yarn? A drape-y and slouchy yarn? A woolen but sturdy yarn?
- Have you ever wondered how to minimize the imperfections when working handspun yarns?
- Do you want to know the best fibers and blends for high-wear or luxury items?
These and so many more questions are covered in the new issue of PLY. We cover toques, tams, bulky cabled hats, mittens, gloves, fingerless mitts, and fancy mitts. We delve into spinning for colorwork, spinning for cables, spinning for luxury items, spinning for warmth, spinning for high-use wear, and spinning for smooth color changes. There are carders and handcards, colors and solids, colorwork, and cables. And of course, there more projects than you can shake a stick at. You’ll want to break out your spindles, wheels, looms, and needles. This issue is about warm hands, warm heads, and warm hearts.
Even non-spinners can find value in this issue, as it is chock-full of patterns to warm you up.
