Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Whether it's moving to the country and starting over on a whim or just making city- living a little simpler and easier, the "Green" movement is changing the way we live our day- to-day lives. Skyhorse's Self-Sufficiency handbooks are meant to help--offering advice on what to do, how to do it better, and how to save money as well. This is a beautifully illustrated series made even more beautiful, because its goal is to help everyone live in a more earth-friendly fashion.

Weaving your own textiles is a rewarding activity--with the added benefit of knowing that the entire process can be done by hand, with little outside energy. This handbook looks at where different fibers come from, how to grow and harvest them, and how to prepare them for spinning. The principles of spinning are also included, as well as information on how to dye your fibers with natural dyestuff. Also included are numerous simple projects for decorating your home.

Synopsis:

More and more Americans are becoming concerned about living a healthier and more environmentally friendly lifestyle.
