Self-sufficiency Spinning, Dyeing and Weaving free pdf With the textile industry able to make cloth more quickly and cheaply than ever before, why make your own? The answer is simple: nothing could be more different and unique than hand-made textiles. Weaving your own textiles for use in clothing or furnishings is a rewarding and satisfying activity - with the added benefit of knowing that the whole process can be done just as well by hand, using almost no energy but your own! This book looks at where different fibres come from, how to grow and harvest your own vegetable fibres, and how to prepare them for spinning. The principles of spindle and spinning wheel spinning are covered, along with home dyeing using natural dyestuffs, and hand weaving with or without a loom. Finally, there are a number of simple projects, such as a rug, shoulder bag, bed cover, and jumper and mitts to put your newly learnt skills to the test.

About Penny Walsh

Penny Walsh teaches and researches traditional techniques of dyeing and spinning, adapting them in the light of contemporary advances whilst retaining the quality of colour and texture. She uses as ecologically sound ingredients as possible and renewable sources, and endeavours to source animal fibres from breeds that are becoming rare because they are not commercial.
