Believe it or not, it was in my local library here in Australia!
I could scan the cover to help you find it if you like?

That would be great, thanks! Or if you can find a link to it online, that'd work, too.

at this point you can only get handspun rev. at a reasonable price from lexi herself, at the pluckyfluff website (www.pluckyfluff.com)  From her it's $36...  And the last time I was on her site (last week when I ordered one of her crazy rainbow batts) it said she was almost out of them.    It's considered out of print, and I never saw a copy for less than $150 on amazon.    Then when you order it from her, you can also order one of her crazy rainbow batts that are totally FANTASTIC!!

I think it's worth having both books, since there are techniques that lexi talks about in handspun rev. that she doesn't cover in Intertwined.. like spinning with sequins, making loop yarn, spinning elastic core yarns, making shag yarns,  making felted flower yarns and making her "cotton ball" yarn
