There is a great new book out by Ashley Martineau called, “Spinning and Dyeing Yarn.” Ashley has profiled 4 fiber artists with Herman Hills Farm being one of the profiles. I am not posting about this book just because my farm is featured in it. The farm profile is just a small two page story out of a 200 page book jam packed with information!!!
The book is a complete guide on spinning and dyeing. There are also some DIY projects for making your own wheel, niddy noddy, and drying rack. The spinning section covers basics and also a lot of art yarn techniques (which are great for spinner wanting to try something a bit different).
The dyeing section covers many different dyeing techniques. I love books and even though I am an advanced spinner and experienced dyer, I have found new information and techniques within the pages of “Spinning and Dyeing Yarns.” It is a book for every spinner’s library. The pages are filled with lots of beautiful photographs of fibers and handspun yarns from many talented artisans. The book is hardcover, with nice thick paper, and binding which helps keep the book open flat.
