Dyeing to Spin and Knit by Felicia Lo
"Dyeing to Spin & Knit" offers a master class in preparing hand-dyed yarns and fibres. As dyeing and spinning become more popular this is an invaluable guide in how to avoid pitfalls and make the yarn that you want to create the finished project you desire.
"Unapologetic" is how Felicia Lo describes her obsession with colour and craft. Felicia, founder and creative director of SweetvGeorgia Yarns and highly-sought after lecturer, provides clear and accessible guidance for creating gorgeous hand-dyed yarns and spinning fibres and an understanding of how dyeing affects knitted yarn and handspun yarn. Fibre artists will learn the fundamentals of how colour works, how to combine and coordinate colours, and how to control the results when dyeing wool and silk yarn and fibres. Spinners will learn how to subdue intense and bright colourways or prevent muddiness in handspun yarns. Knitters will gain the knowledge to avoid or maximise the effects of pooling. And finally, this book includes 10 patterns that use hand-dyed and handspun yarns and fibres to their most exciting advantage in knitting projects.
