The Big Book of Fibery Rainbows
Author: Suzy Brown and Arlene Thayer
From the authors:
This book is an imagination prompt that doesn’t bog you down in colour theory or rules – instead we use the beautiful, wide palette of the rainbow as our basis for step by step instructions to create and manage colours the way you want them to be in your fiber prep (aka how to make magical fairy fiber).
We begin with an examination of what rainbows are and how so many colours can work successfully together in one palette. This is our foundation and how we use the combination of a range of (any) multiple colours to make beautifully pleasing eye candy yarn. We know you love colour as we do, but we also know that you are looking for practical content. The Big Book of Fibery Rainbows is rich with instructions that take you through the use of different fiber tools, colour blending to create your own palette, and then how to combine those into stunning spinnable fiber preparations.
We have added especially developed, step by step yarn spinning recipes to make the best use of the amazing multi-coloured fiber preparations we have created, from rolags to blended batts, combed top and hackled fiber. These recipes show you how to use and manage those wonderful colours you have created and organised!
We are honoured to be able to begin the book with a wonderful Foreword written by Lexi Boeger (Pluckyfluff). Here is one of our favorite quotes: “…the subject matter stays focused on frame of mind and experimentation which will ultimately create artists instead of followers. There is plenty of brick and mortar information to be had, however. Loaded with easy to read how-to’s and step by step descriptions of the many different methods to creating unique color ways, Rainbows will teach you plenty while making you feel like you discovered it all on your own! It truly is the treasure at the end of the rainbow.”
