Reading Corner Thursday one day removed.

First off I would like to apologize because with the number of shows I’d doing this week in addition to my full-time job I should have know better than to launch this idea this week. This will be a short one, but I really wanted to get it rolling and I can’t think of a better book to lead off with than The Fleece and Fiber Sourcebook by Carol Ekarius and Deborah Robson.

 

I found it right at its publication date and I truly feel it was meant to be. This book has so much pertinent information on various fleece animals that as a beginner at spinning and processing I’ve found it invaluable.  The color photos are crisp and show so many useful variations on each type of animal that I’ve taken to just curling up on the couch with it to look at the pictures on dreary, rainy days. I also bought their Field Guide to take to the wool festivals with me so I can double-check my wish lists.

 

I highly recommend both books to anyone with an interest in fiber arts. I don’t believe that you will regret the purchases.
