9780030428210: Weaving: A Handbook of the Fiber Arts

Shirley Held, a specialist in weaving and design, opens the book with a brief history of fabric construction... Beginning with weaving on the loom, Part II goes into the materials, tools and equipment, preparation, drafting, types of weaves, and finishing procedures. Part III looks at other construction methods -- pile weaves, simple looms, and non-loom techniques such as macramé, sprang, plaiting and braiding. Sections on spinning and coloring of yarns, and on elements of design, round out the information.
