As spinners become more experienced, they understand the importance of starting with the right fiber for the intended use. Not only do they want the right fiber, they want to process it themselves for maximum control of their final yarn. In this excellent and extensive resource book, the authors present the history of the breed as well as the fiber characteristics from sheep, goat, camelids and more—more than 200 animals in total. The excellent photography is both inspiring and informative.
