From Library Journal
In this day and age, when we are deluged with titles purporting to be "the complete book of...," here is a book that might accurately have been titled The Complete Book of Color in Spinning. Drawing on 20 years of experience learning and teaching color techniques for handspinners, Menz has created an essential manual for any handspinner who wishes to add color to handspun yarn through immersion dyeing, painting rovings, blending, carding, and/or plying yarn to create a product unavailable in any store. Included are 150 color photos, line drawings, and a gallery of pieces incorporating techniques discussed in the book. A very practical book, with step-by-step instructions, dye formulas, and a good selection of self-study exercises at the end of each chapter; highly recommended for textile collections.?JZ

I am really glad that I was able to purchase a drum carder (I love the Brother deluxe. Great value, quality from real people) but if you have hand cards these techniques will work just fine. I use mine for samples. I dye my own fibers too, and Deb's input has helped me to be more focused about how much of my favorite colors to dye, and how to achieve saturation.
Tones, tints, shades, heathers and more. This book lives on my must-have shelf. Deb also has some online classes through Interweave Press which are excellent companions to her books.
I also recommend "Colorworks" by Deb Menz, for many types of fiber artists and painters.
I highly recommend this book!
