Handspun Treasures from Rare Wools: Collected Works from the Save the Sheep Exhibit


This book highlights rare breeds of sheep and gives all kinds of fascinating information about them: where the breed is to be found, how it came about, the type of wool the sheep grow, and the status of the breed in terms of rarity.

If that isn't interesting enough, there are pictures of projects done in various wools like Jacob, California Mutant Red, Pitt Island, Leicester Longwool and Cotswold. The projects range from knitted lace to woven rugs. If you are a handspinner, weaver or knitter who likes fine wools, this is a very interesting little book. I really enjoyed it.
