Here is the description of Spin to Weave from spin2weaveInterweave’s website:

With expertise and enthusiasm, Sara shows the joy and satisfaction of weaving with handspun yarns.

For 20,000 years, weavers have made cloth with handspun, and you can, too. It’s the ultimate in textile artistry: creating cloth from fiber to yarn to the finished product. When you spin yarn for weaving, you have complete control over the color, texture, and performance of your fabric.

From fiber to finish, learn to create luxurious cloth from handspun yarn. By mastering spinning techniques, weaving techniques, color, texture and more, you will be creating gorgeous fabric in no time.
