The Fleece and Fiber Sourcebook - Ultimate Spinner's Reference Guide

The Fleece and Fiber Sourcebook: More than 200 fibers from Animal to Spun Yarn.

From sheep, goats, alpaca, and bison -- all the way to yak -- this book includes everything you've wanted to know about all your favorite spinning fibers.

Pick a sheep breed and flip to that page. You'll find a photo of the breed, some history about its origins and development, facts about it's fleece (weight, fiber count, lock characteristics, color ranges, etc.), and suggestions on how to best use it (how to prepare and spin it, how to dye it, what to knit with it). Even more photos show that breed's fleece raw, cleaned, and spun in several different styles.

The authors have put together a great book with some worthy heft to it.

In stock today!
