Clear ideas about a variety of techniques. This book is more idea-inspired rather than technique-driven.

The most comprehensive section on dyeing ever. Gives lots of details about using Procion MX dyes and acid dyes for silk and wool including weight of fiber calculations rather than the less accurate tsps. Also covers the usual surface design techniques such as screenprinting, stamping, discharge, etc. Includes a section on embellishments that covers use of thread. Preferable to Kate Wells.
