The Fleece and Fiber Sourcebook is THE reference for single breed yarns and fibres. It's absolutely brimming with information about the look and feel of over 200 types of fibres, plus how they work up in knitting, spinning, dyeing, as well as lots of breed history. It's a delight for any fibre lover!
From the back: Knitters, spinners, and weavers love the softness of Merino wool and the luxurious warmth of cashmere, but these fibres are just the beginning of the story. The Fleece and Fiber Sourcebook provides a fascinating look at more that 200 animals and the fibre they produce. In the Merino sheep family alone you'll find entries for 14 distinct breeds!
Meet these animals from around the world and discover the unique characteristics of their fibres. The next time you need an ultrasoft yarn for a baby garment or a warm, studry one for a stadium blanket, you'll know exactly what to choose.
