From the publisher: 'So much of what we make is created by using various fibres. Knitting, crochet, weaving, sewing, embroidery, rug-making, macramé and many more crafts are made possible with yarn, thread and string.

This book gets up close and personal with fibre, telling the stories and processes from fibre farmers, thread and yarn companies to individual artisans. We'll look at natural fibres and how they are made, and how design plays a part in the visual appeal of fibre brands. We'll explore innovative fibres that repurpose and recycle our valuable resources.

Yarn-Thread-String highlights artists, craftspeople and creative entrepreneurs who use these fibres in unique and inspiring ways. You'll gain a new and exciting perspective on what fibre is—and how we can use it to express our individuality, creativity and humanity.'

    Who knew? Paper, climbing rope, lots of natural fibers--all used to create beautiful and useful things. It is inspiring to read about the small companies keeping making alive around the world. This book is an education. I have read nearly every entry. Love the dedication of the people highlighted.
