Product description

Confronted with the wide array of fleece and fibre available today, fibre artists want to understand how each type of fibre is used best, based on a sheep's breed characteristics. And they want the information in a compact, portable format that's easy to bring to fibre festivals and knitting shops. While the authors' first book, The Fleece & Fiber Sourcebook, is the comprehensive bible to the topic, this friendly paperback will appeal as a primer for those new to working with fleece and as a handy reference for the avid enthusiast.
