Fleece & Fiber Sourcebook

More than 200 Fibers from Animal to Spun Yarn

Deborah Robson & Carol Ekarius


This one-of-a-kind photographic encyclopaedia features more than 200 animals and the fibres they produce. It covers almost every sheep breed in the world from the longwool breeds of the United Kingdom to the Tasmanian merino, the Navajo churro, the northern European Faroese, and dozens and dozens more. It also includes goats, camelids (such as alpacas, llamas and vicunas), bison, horses, musk oxen, rabbits and even dogs.

Each entry includes:

  • Photographs of the featured animal
  • Samples of its raw and cleaned fleece, and yarn spun from the fleece
  • Samples of the yarn knit and woven

You will find everything you want to know about each animal and its fibre, including the fibre's colour, density, strength and staple length, and recommendations for processing and using it. This is the essential reference no fibre-lover can be without.
