The Big Book of Fibery Rainbows
Creating and Working with Multi Colored Fibers and Palettes
"the subject matter stays focused on frame of mind and experimentation which will ultimately create artists instead of followers... 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." Lexi Boeger.
Once upon a time.. we fell in love, with color, with fiber, and with all the fibery goodness we could create when we put them together. Suzy and Arlene have been doing just that, playing with colors and different ways to blend, prepare, and spin fiber! Inside this book you will find explosions of inspiration for your color and fiber experiments as you learn how to work confidently with multi colored palettes. We have chosen to work with 'rainbows' to do this because of their magical properties and universal appeal.
This highly practical guide does not weigh you down with color theory or highly complex blending 'systems' nor does it require you to learn multiple dye techniques in order to be unique with your colors. With our straightforward approach you will be able to create the rich, dynamic colors your soul craves. Through the fiber blending instructions and recipes contained inside, you can explore your own sources of inspiration using a range of fiber tools and preparation methods. We will then show you different ways to work with these multi-colored fibers to create stunning yarns. Using our color management techniques you can make yarns that retain the amazing effects you achieved in your fiber preparations.
