This is an encyclopedic resource, updated to include valuable information on the newest engineered blends and "performance" fabrics, along with sound advice on the care, usage and handling of tried-and-true favorites. In this age of scarce local resources for purchasing fine fabrics that leave many of us relying on Internet shopping, Claire Shaeffer's thorough descriptions of the properties of various fabrics help to make informed purchasing decisions. Sprinkled throughout the book are valuable hints that can be incorporated into garment construction and show off the very best properties of the fabrics.
