Spinning, Dyeing, & Weaving: Self Sufficiency
From the fly leaf: In this comprehensive book, Penny Walsh reveals all you need to know to make your own fabrics: where different fibres come from and how to grow or source your own; how to prepare them for spinning; how to use various spindles and spinning wheels to create yarn; how to dye your fabric using entirely natural dyestuffs; plus how to weave your material by hand either with or without a loom. Finally there are a number of simple projects - including a rug, a hat and a scarf - to put your newly-learnt skills to the test.
