An easy to read, beautifully illustrated resource that makes the reader want to reach out and touch the animals and fiber. The book feels good in your hands, with a quality binding and strong pages that should be able to last a lot of thumbing through over the years. The content covers Micron counts, terms to know, and is packed with specific information about the animals, fleece facts on staple length, micron counts, lock characteristics, etc. Additional information on using the particular fiber , such as preparation tips, dyeing suggestions, use in needlework or weaving, and best uses of the fiber. There are geographic maps of the origins of the sheep and fiber animal breeds. You will want to keep this book always handy!
