Synopsis

In a world where sheep-based kinitting is the norm, do you feel left out? Are you knitting for someone who won't wear wool? Lucky you! Yummy yarn materials can be found growing out of the ground, bubbling out of Pyrex beakers, and keeping bugs warm while they grow wings. You just need to get to know these fibers so you can make the most of them.

Amy R. Singer, editor of Knitty online magazine, knows non-wool fibers and their secrets. She's allergic to wool and has spent most of her knitting life trying to knit just like everyone else but without the baa. In No Sheep for You she shares her best non-wool knowledge.

This how-to guide will teach you all about non-wool yarns, focusing on plant fibers including cotton, linen, hemp, soy, bamboo, Tencel, rayon, the new synthetics and more, plus the most delicious non-wool of all: silk. Learn why each fiber behaves the way it does, how to make it do what you want it to do, and when it's time to try something else instead. This wild world of fibers is accompanied by 22 classic and wearable patterns for socks, scarves, hats, shawls, sweaters, vests, and bags - all created with fibers that never had four legs.

An entire chapter is devoted to tips and tricks that some time and money. Learn the inside scoop that will enable you get the look of wool in your knitting while using the fibers you prefer. No more baggy sweaters that grow to your knees. No more gaping cables. No more droopy socks! Take your knitting to the next level with No Sheep for You.
