"There are so many different types of wool out there. Yarn made from Merino, will behave and feel completely differently from an Icelandic or Bluefaced Leicester yarn. The Knitter's Book of Yarn is a really comprehensive reference that explains the properties and best uses for dozens of breeds of sheep's wool. This is a valuable resource for any knitter or spinner who frequently uses wool yarn or roving. You will be able to choose just the right type of wool yarn for any project that you want to knit. Additionally, there are amazing patterns included in this book. Sivia Harding's Tibetan Clouds Beaded Stole is stunning, and has an unusual construction. I love the sideways honeycomb yoke on the Comfy Cardigan. And I could see myself knitting the Sweet Fern Mitts over and over as gifts." Nina Isaacson, Designer
