Originally published in 1906, this handy little guide touches on every aspect of traditionally used textiles, including information on plants and their growth, animal sources of fiber (e.g., wool and silk), structural information on fibers, and how to prepare fibers for turning them into cloth and dyeing.
Hasluck describes many essential aspects of textile growth and processing, including cotton, flax, jute, wool, and silk. Hasluck also describes the bleaching and mercerising processes for textiles, as well as how to scour and bleach wool and silk. Finally, a brief discussion on fabric dyeing is provided to readers on how to traditionally process fibers for their eventual coloring. This knowledge is invaluable to handcrafters, DIY textile spinners and yarn-makers, and traditionalists

About the Doublebit Press Legacy Edition Reprint Collection
Sometimes we need to remember our history to move forward. Sometimes, remembering our heritage is just fun or inspirational. But sometimes, remembering the old ways of doing things gives a human component to handcrafts and traditional arts. With technology playing a major role in everyday life, sometimes we need to take a step back in time to find those basic building blocks used for gaining mastery - the things that we have luckily not completely lost and has been recorded in books over the last two centuries. These skills aren't forgotten, they've just been shelved. It's time to unshelve them once again and reclaim the lost knowledge of self-sufficiency
