- Must-have reference Review by Cindy dePutron
An excellent book whether you're new to spinning and know very little about wool, or want to expand your knowledge and explore breeds beyond what is commonly available. This slender book includes an enormous quantity of information on the fiber or British, Australia, and New Zealand breeds of sheep. It includes pictures of the fiber (but not the sheep), micron size, and typical use of the wool. It's interesting to read and a worthwhile addition to fibrest's library.

- Excellent reference Review by Brenda Vance
This book has excellent detailed information about different sheep breeds and their fleeces/fiber. It is invaluable for researching the softness, luster, felting properties, etc. of fleeces when you're shopping online. Charts for breeds types help to compare fibers at a glance.
