This book is aimed at those who dye wool fabric, not yarn or roving. My rating is therefore low, because KnitPicks is aimed at knitters, not rug hookers. His basic technique involves boiling the fabric. This is not suitable to roving or yarn. While his techniques produce lovely fabric, they are not necessarily easily translated to yarn. I'm returning the book.
