Whether dyeing to spin or knitting with a skein of beautiful hand-dyed yarn, this comprehensive must-have guide for spinners, knitters and fibre enthusiasts has everything you need to know to work with colour in yarns! 

"Unapologetic" is how Felicia Lo always describes her obsession with colour and craft. In Dyeing to Spin and Knit, Felicia, founder and creative director of SweetGeorgia Yarns and highly sought after teacher and lecturer, provides clear and accessible guidance for creating gorgeous hand-dyed yarns and spinning fibres and an understanding of how dyeing affects knitted yarn and handspun yarn. 

Fibre artists will learn the fundamentals of how colour works, how to combine and coordinate colours, and how to control the results when dyeing wool and silk yarns and fibres. Spinners will learn how to subdue intense and bright colourways or prevent muddiness in handspun. Knitters will gain the knowledge to avoid or maximize the effects of pooling. And finally, this book includes 10 patterns that use hand-dyed and handspun yarns and fibres to their most exciting advantage in knitting projects.

Complete with detailed photographs from Felicia's own dyeing studio, Dyeing to Spin and Knit offers a master class in preparing hand-dyed yarns and fibres. 

Ignite your love of colour--unapologetically!
