Shear Spirit: Life on America's Fiber Farms and Ranches

by Joan Tapper

Hardcover, 2008






Part coffee-table book, part inspirational work, and part pattern guide, Shear Spirit connects knitters to the yarn-producing community in a new and intimate way. Filled with stunning photographs, fascinating essays and heartwarming profiles, this book follows the writer and photographer to 10 fibre farms and ranches across America - from the Willamette Valley of Oregon to the coast of Maine-capturing the essence of the people, places and animals that, together, create yarn. 20 projects featuring yarns from the farms surveyed will inspire knitters everywhere.

Much more about the whole process of raising the animals to shearting, spinning and final products. More a book to read than a pattern book. The patterns are interesting and the hats are really wonderful.

This was like getting a free pass into the lives of many different fiber artists.
