Cloth has long been as central to our lives as food, drink and shelter, yet few people know how the fabrics they wear every day are made.

In this little book Christina Martin tells the incredible story of weaving, from the end of the last Ice Age, to the looms we use today, spinning the yarns of a 12,000 year-old magical science and practical art. With useful patterns, weaves and loom references, and illustrated throughout by the author, this is a charming and illuminating pocket book for all ages.
