How to Choose, Use, and Knit Natural Fibers form Alpaca to Yak
by Barbara Albright
My Score: **** star (** Never Buy/ *** Not Bad/ **** Good to Keep/ ***** Must Have)
Everything about this book is rich, lush and beautiful. The author did a beautiful job of exploring natural fibers. For me, many of the patterns are challenging with my current "patience to skill" ratio (I consider myself a newly-intermediate-knitter) - but I am inspired to eventually try several patterns. Albright discussed how to define "organic" fibers - there are, I believe, 5 distinctions of organic fibers. Qualities of fibers are thoroughly reviewed. Though I am not a spinner, spinning is discussed in terms that make sense to a knitter. I liked Albrights' general approch, it's very nuturing and informative to knitters and fiber artists of all levels. Must have book on your list..
Pattern by Judy Jacket
Yarn: Phat Silk Fines by La Lana Wool
Pattern by Linda Romens
Yarn: Northern Mist spun by Mini Mills Ltd.,
Pattern by Beth Brown-Reinsel
Yarn : Morehouse Farm Merino 2-ply
Architectural Rib Pullover
Pattern by North Gaugchan
Yarn: Cashmere Bland by Harriville Designs.
by Darlene Hayes
Yarn: Fingering Weight Yarn by Nature's Palette
In her introduction, Barbara explores what qualifies as "organic" yarn and the varying classifications of organic products. In explaining the purpose of The Natural Knitter, she states: "Armed with the information you glean from this book, you will have a greater understanding and a new appreciation of the wide variety of natural yarns that are available...While this book is about natural fibers, it is also about people who take another step toward being more earth-friendly..."
