Description

With the textile industry able to make cloth more quickly and cheaply than ever before, why make your own?

The answer is simple: nothing could be more different and unique than hand-made textiles.

Weaving your own textiles for use in clothing or furnishings is a rewarding and satisfying activity - with the added benefit of knowing that the whole process can be done just as well by hand, using almost no energy but your own!

This book looks at where different fibres come from, how to grow and harvest your own vegetable fibres, and how to prepare them for spinning.

The principles of spindle and spinning wheel spinning are covered, along with home dyeing using natural dyestuffs, and hand weaving with or without a loom.

Finally, there are a number of simple projects, such as a rug, shoulder bag, bed cover, and jumper and mitts to put your newly learnt skills to the test.
