When I moved to Alaska and could only take 12 Rubbermaid totes with me, this book was a must have for my now very limited knitting library. Gail has covered many aspects of dyeing in this very colorful guide with easy to understand terms without repeating herself to the point of redundancy like most other books I have picked up. There is a technique for everyone from children to anyone seasoned in this art. The pictures are beautiful, inspirational, and relay the idea behind the directions. This is a must have for anyone looking to expand their knowledge in fiber arts.
This book is a wonderful resource for anyone interested in learning to dye yarn and fiber. The explanations and photographs are clear and easy to understand. I've tried several of Gail's methods and they all work. Her explanation of color theory is really helpful. I find this book very inspiring.
This book may well contain all I will ever need to know to dye almost any fiber. The directions are concise and easy to understand.
