SPIN, WEAVE AND WEAR: The Story of Cloth

Email this review


A surprising amount of history, human interest and story is dovetailed into a book that in length is little more than an outline of the story of cloth. An excellent job of condensation, from the earliest weavers, the days of the hand looms on to the industrial revolution and the spread of the knowledge to the world. Then the development of different types of fabric,- wool, linen, cotton, silk, rayon; the various facets of the textile industry. Excellent introduction to subject.
