Editorial Reviews

Knitting News
"This book is a must for spinners. It is also good for knitters interested in dyeing their own yarn for knitting."
KnitNet
This comprehensive guide is absolutely essential for the handspinner who wants color in his or her work.
Spindle and Wheel
All I can say about this one is WOW! I learned way more than my money's worth with this treasure trove of information.
Library Journal
In this day and age, when we are deluged with titles purporting to be "the complete book of...," here is a book that might accurately have been titled The Complete Book of Color in Spinning. Drawing on 20 years of experience learning and teaching color techniques for handspinners, Menz has created an essential manual for any handspinner who wishes to add color to handspun yarn through immersion dyeing, painting rovings, blending, carding, and/or plying yarn to create a product unavailable in any store. Included are 150 color photos, line drawings, and a gallery of pieces incorporating techniques discussed in the book. A very practical book, with step-by-step instructions, dye formulas, and a good selection of self-study exercises at the end of each chapter; highly recommended for textile collections.JZ
