Essential reading for handspinners, wool growers, and other fiber craft enthusiasts, this indispensable reference book provides a comprehensive review of the characteristics of wool from 100 breeds of sheep. Actual fleece locks are shown in full-size photographs, and knitting, crochet, weaving, and other techniques illustrate the importance of matching wool type to end use. Everything from baby-soft Merino to silky Lincoln and sturdy Karakul - the full range of nature's miracle fiber - is represented here, with special attention given to fleece characteristics and to methods of preparation and spinning. You'll find expert advice on: selecting top-quality fleeces; cleaning wool efficiently and thoroughly; teasing, flicking, combing, carding, and other preparation methods; and spinning and plying a variety of yarn styles.
