The Field Guide to Fleece by Deborah Robson & Carol Ekarius,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Field Guide to Fleece, The (Paperback)
Based on the Fleece and Fibre Source Book this little book is handy enough to pop into a bag or pocket if you're looking to buy your fleece at a show. I measures just 5" x 7" and is 232 pages of excellent information. It covers the origin of the sheep, fleece weights, staple length, fibre diameters, natural colours and crimp. Also a glossary of terms if you're unfamiliar with them. It gives colour photos of both the sheep and the fleece it produces and whether it's suitable to spin or felt and also how it takes dye. All in all a great little book worth it's weight in gold.
