Spinning, Dyeing, & Weaving
Self-sufficiencyBook - 2010
Weaving your own textiles is a rewarding activity that comes with the added benefit of knowing that the entire process can be done by hand, with little outside energy. This handbook, with detailed, full-color illustrations, explores where different fibers come from, how to grow and harvest them, and how to prepare them for spinning, dyeing, and weaving. The principles of spinning are explained, and detailed information is included on how to dye your fibers at home with natural dyestuff. Also, there are numerous weaving patterns for simple projects, including scarves, hats, and rugs.
