Fiber Binder Club Breed Study Information Worksheets
Printed on card stock for strength and durability, there are 60 different natural fibers included for 120 pages of information and areas for you to add in the results of your own research and testing. Also included are 5 "blank" forms for adding in others you find as you do your own research into fiber. Pre-punched for three-ring binders. The purpose of the Fiber Binder Club Breed Study Information Worksheets is to help you learn more about natural fibers found primarily in North America and the UK. Included is a history of the fiber, breed associations information, photos, places to put your samples, an area for your own notes as you learn about each one. We encourage you to spin, felt, dye, knit, crochet, weave, and anything else you can think of as you learn. Also, there is information on the best uses of each fiber to help you decide what will work best for the project you have in mind. There is so much to learn about natural fibers, and we want to do our best to help you in your learning process.
