"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."
