5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for knitters who want to expand their horizons, 3 Nov. 2012
This review is from: Pure Wool: A Knitter's Guide to Using Single-breed Yarns (Paperback)
Today the Travelling Spinners had their monthly meeting in Middleton, Northumberland. I took along my copy of Pure Wool for anyone who wanted to see it.... everyone wanted to look through it! I did get my copy back at the end of the day though. The group members have experience of knitting and spinning ranging from many decades to a few weeks. Some know a lot about fleece from different breeds of sheep, some are just starting on the exciting adventure and were enthused by what they learnt from the book.

General summary from everyone - a great book with a lot to offer to spinners as well as knitters.

Below I'm sharing the comments I jotted down from most members of the group.

Maureen: I like the way it shows you what each breed can be used for.

Ruth: Excellent book to get people interested in knitting and spinning different breeds

Kathleen: It's really nice and very informative. Good for someone who doesn't know about English breeds of sheep. Something to offer for both novice and experienced spinners.

Chris: The illustrations and photos are great - those of the samples of knitted yarn are especially helpful.

Alison: I just like it.

Sarah: It shows versatility of British wool and proves it's not all for carpets

Betty: Very informative. Good advert for British wool.

Veronica: An excellent source of information about British wool.

Stevie: I don't knit but I'd still buy it. A very good looking book

Fiona: Very informative. I like the history and stories about some of the knitting designs and patterns. I would like a few more breeds.

Sue: A lovely range of patterns to make 'proper' knitted garments.

Jane:
My thoughts. A beautiful book, superb photography. Interesting and enjoyable read about the sheep and patterns/designs. Great reference information at the back to refer to when deciding how to knit yarn from different breeds. Nice to have some classic, beautiful patterns that will look good for the many years that the knitting in these British breed wool yarns will last.

Final result from the day - most of the group were writing down the details of the book so they could each go and buy their own copy. They felt it had a great deal to offer to spinners as well as knitters.
