These are some of my favorite books and a small selection of what I have. They’re a combination of research books and technique books. I’m always looking for recommendations for more!
I loved hoffman and ostegard, but personally I couldn’t get on with wayland barber, I hadn’t read far when she used some phrase like, “the great sorority of the spindle” or soemsuch, at which point I almost puked and had to put the book down – it smacked too much of feminist re-imagining of history
For me she lacks detail. I’d love to have a much deeper amount of detail similar to the Hoffman book in depth. Also, you’re right. It’s not a sorority, it’s drudgery when you have to do it all the time, your entire life! I’m so glad I can do fiber arts as a hobby and not a necessity.
I dont think I ever got far enough to notice the lack of detail, I was too nauseated!
