Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from History, Instruction, Projects & Information If you care about the history of needlework and are curious about exotic yarns, this is the book for you! The projects are beautiful, the instructions clear, the history of farming and marketing qiviut is covered and there is plenty of information about musk ox yarn. If you love working with fibers and working with your hands, this is one you have got to buy. Qiviut is wonderful to work with and this book is a great starting point if you want to play with this fiber.
