Even though I've been working with wool and raising sheep for many years, I found things of interest here. Interesting to me were the details about how wool grows, and I have even been using the In Sheep's clothing e-book as a handy reference for a concise overview of differing breeds. I have the 1st edition of Homespun, Handknit and had been told this edition was more contemporary. Though I gravitate toward classical, I found it to hold several enticing projects. Haven't watched the carding video yet, but Good value for the information and products included. Even though I wouldn't have chosen these individually, and thought several of them would be superflous to me, I have enjoyed it all and especially at the price it is offered, I would recommend it as a good introduction with a few interesting details for those who have been at it awhile.
