“Set down your knitting needles, kick off your barn boots, and put on the kettle before becoming absorbed in every page of this book. Whether you are smitten with fiber or warm wooly faces, Shear Spirit provides a cozy window into modern-day fiber farming. Get ready to spend an afternoon on the farm without tuning up the tractor, and enjoy colorful patterns that will keep you happily counting stitches well into the night.” –Linda Cortright, Wildfibers Magazine
