For thousands of years weaving has provided mankind with clothing, warmth, shelter and decoration. Today the hand-weaver is free to explore the effects of particular yarns, designs and weaves not economic for the industrial process. This book is a practical guide to weaving: it covers the different fibres and yarns, spinning and dyeing and a variety of techniques for weaving cloth, rugs and tapestry. Over 400 photographs and drawings illustrate the techniques with many examples of the rich traditions of weaving past and present.
