Adventures in Yarn Farming

Four Seasons on a New England Fiber Farm
Adventures in Yarn Farming focuses on the sheep-to-shawl process by Barbara Parry, well-known knitter, shepherd, and artisanal yarn producer.

Gain an insider's view on fiber farming and yarn craft, from sheep to skein, all told through the eyes of shepherd and textile artisan Barbara Parry. Follow her flock over the course of a year and discover all the facets of life with sheep: from shearing day and lambing season, to preparing fiber for yarn. Along the way you'll find projects for the fiber obsessed by top knitwear designers, essays on country life, and over 100 stunning photographs. With the growing locavore movement, the rising trend in sustainable farming, and the ever-increasing interest in crafting, this book is perfect for those who yearn for a closer connection to a rural lifestyle and who enjoy making things by hand. Random House, hardcover, 272 pages
