Color in Spinning Reviews
The best book I've seen that deals with blending your fibers for color. Deb sticks to this specific subject throughout the book. I have been working with colors and fibers forever, but when I ventured into spinning last year I realized that applying what I know about color theory to fiber blending is a departure from my previous experience.
Coming from a formal art background, I really appreciate this book. Not only does it cover the basics of dyeing and carding/combing well, but it also provides lessons in color (beyond the basic color wheel) where you directly see the results of mixing and using different color combinations. There are samples of finished knitted pieces using similarly-colored yarn yet with slightly different properties. Readers are encouraged to use the exercises for future self-directed study. Great cataloguing ideas are offered.
As a spinner and natural dyer I found this book informative and can see it becoming a real 'go to' when mixing colours either on the carder or during the spin
The treatment of color by light and by pigment is very descriptive. And I found the detailed descriptions of how to dye fleece using many types of dyes to be very helpful. This is a comprehensicve treatment of color and dying tecnique and is a reference book that I will use often in fiber arts.
Great book for a beginning spinner.
if you are a spinner or a knitter you need this book for dyeing your own yarns (handspuns) I enjoyed this book . it is a refence book plus a great book for inspiring your dying projects. I d reccomend this book to any one into dyeing and spinning ~
As a beginning spinner I immediately began blending yarn to achieve the colors in this book and she's right! Everything I tried using the instructions in this book came out exactly the way I planned. There are lots of beautiful ideas here - I wish I had time to try them all!
This has to be the most informative spinning book I've come across. For me it has been most helpful in detailing carding & spinning tips & tricks. Several 'ah-ha' moments while reading then spinning. I highly recommend this book for any beginner spinner. Totally inspiring to do more & push the limits!!
