The Big Book of Fibery Rainbows
The Big Book of Fibery Rainbows: Creating and Working with Multi Colored Fibers and Palettes
By Suzy Brown and Arlene Thayer
Captivated by texture and color, Suzy Brown and Arlene Thayer share their fibery exploits on the blogs www.woolwench.com, www.spinartiste.com, and www.fiberygoodness.com. Their sites are fueled by an endless dose of curiosity and experimentation.
Drawing inspiration from a meteorological marvel, The Big Book of Fibery Rainbows is a self-published tribute to the art of spinning that ranges from inspiration and historical context to exploration of the many variations of rainbows and how to capture the spectrum in fiber. Rainbows typically include six to seven distinct colors, but Brown and Thayer exhibit how they can be translated into gradations, pastels, jewel tones, and natural hues. The book encourages spinners to pull out the stash of tools and blend their way to vivid and dramatic yarns.
