Knit with your handspun! Spin up handpainted yarns, gradients, batts, and different breeds, then cast on 20 custom knits with your one-of-a-kind yarn.

Spin + Knit features spinning and knitting projects for all skill levels, whether you've just started or are a more experienced spinner or knitter. Learn about the animal fibers we love to spin, from various sheep breeds to camelids to goats.

We’re batty for batts—and we know you are too! Learn three ways to spin striped batts. Discover how to control color and texture and spin lofty, smooth, or wild yarn that makes your knitting sing.
