New Book: Farm To Needle
A celebration of the fibre arts community of the Pacific Northwest, this newly published book by Tolt in Washington State presents some of the finest producers, designers and dyers of within our ethically-local fibre shed.
From Tolt’s webpage:
When we pick up our needles, cast-on the first stitch, we become part of something much bigger than the project at hand. Farmers, shearers, spinners and dyers are working hard not only to produce the yarn we love, but to preserve a way of life that is at real risk of being lost. Farm to Needle: Stories of Wool invites you to join us on a journey; to peek behind the scenes of some of our favorite producers and gain a deeper understanding of the people, places, and animals at work. Discover Aspen Hollow Farm, Green Mountain Spinnery, Imperial Stock Ranch, Thirteen Mile Farm, YOTH, Saco River Dye House, and Twirl through patterns by Dianna Walla, Tif Fussell, Veronika Jobe, Ashley Yousling & Annie Rowden, Karen Templer, and Andrea Rangel. Photography by Kathleen Cadigan.
Includes some gorgeous photography, a glimpse into amazing fibre talent and seven newly released patterns, this book is available at Baaad Anna’s today for the fibre lover in your life.
