By Ann Richards. Yarn is not a static material. The properties of the fiber itself plus the method of its spinning means that yarn can twist, pleat, crinkle, or curve once it is washed. This tendancy can be harnessed into amazing three-dimensional fabrics. Ann Richards walks you through the qualities that have the most potential for dramatic shaping and then explains how to get the most out of them. The book is beautifully illustrated with color photographs of finished pieces as well as the yarns and tools that made them possible. It is both an inspirational book and a "how-to".
