At first, I was disappointed. I had somehow missed the fact that this was pocket sized and was expecting a large book, more like a magazine sized book. However, as I sat down and flipped through this, I was extremely happy with it. As someone who does hand spinning (with a drop spindle), I was thrilled to have something I could take with me to fleece and fiber shows. I've started storing small bits of fleeces in the book as well, so I can compare what I have to what I'm looking at (and what the authors say). I also own the Fleece and Fiber Source Book, and am happy to have both. This is great for grab and go and quick reference, while the Source Book has more breeds, but also a little more depth (and non-sheep breeds). Highly recommend this.

This book is absolutely essential for people who shop for fiber and/or fleece to spin. It is also useful for fiber artists who have specific needs in their work. Wool is not just wool and a fleece is not just a fleece. Made to fit in a purse or large pocket I now keep it with me whenever I think I might meet fiber, fleece or even wool. Do you want to know which wool is meant for the skin and which is meant for the floor ? Do you care where it is long or short fibered ? Knowing the breed will tell you everything you need to know about the fiber - as long as you have this book at hand.
