Abstract:

This book is as much for the experienced weaver as for the beginner. If you are just becoming interested in these crafts, there are many things you will be wanting to know. You'll literally have hundreds of questions. In this book I attempt to answer those questions. If you are already involved in weaving, spinning, and dyeing, I hope there will be many new ideas and ways of doing things that will interest you. The approach of this book is to give you basic information that will make it possible for you to understand the processes of weaving, spinning, and dyeing, so that no matter what tools or methods you are using, you will know what you are doing. - Preface.
