Yarns used in these examples range from fleece and pre-dyed tops through to the feathers or lashes style yarns and the latest in "feral" yarns, and the effect is stunning! For many of them you only need less than a full ball to create highlights and colour contrasts so it takes advantage of all the bits and pieces left over from other projects.
This is a book to dip into time and time again, and shows the possibilities that modern yarn styles open up to even the novice weaver. As the first part of the book shows how to warp up and weave on a loom, even a first timer can unleash their creativity, and a gallery section at the end shows examples of how the finished cloth can be used. It gives a fresh outlook to a traditional craft and brings it firmly into the 21st Century!
