Infinitely variable and wondrous stuff, is yarn. We love it, but sometimes it just doesn’t seem to love us back. A Weaver’s Guide to Yarn is
one weaver’s attempt to unlock the mysteries of selecting yarns for
weaving on the rigid-heddle loom, although the information is widely
applicable to all loom types.
Written with the rigid-heddle weaver in mind, this book starts with
selecting yarns, the biggest stumbling block for weavers, then dives
into how to measure it, how it is made, and what it is made of. There
are tips for buying yarn in all the ways you can find it.
Pulled together from ten years of writing on the subject of yarn as
it relates to weaving and countless hours interacting with weavers and
listening to their befuddlement over yarn issues, this guide is created
to peel away the layers and give you the information you need to
succeed, all pulled together in one volume. No more hunting and pecking
to find the information you thought you saw somewhere else.
