“We’re noticing that people who have a passion for knitting are turning that passion toward spinning,” says Amy Clarke Moore who is the editor of Spin-Off magazine. “Several knitting shops have told us that their beginning spinning classes are filling up at rates they haven’t seen in years.”

“With today’s stressful and fast-paced lifestyle, people are realizing the benefits of sitting down at a spinning wheel to relax with the added benefit of making their own yarn,” says Foothills Yarn & Fiber shop owner Connie Betts. “We just started selling spinning wheels and in the last 2 weeks we’ve sold 4 of them. Our sales of raw alpaca fiber and alpaca rovings from our alpacas have also been increasing–we now buy fleeces from neighboring alpaca ranches to keep up with the demand at our shop.”
