'A beautifully informative new book with only one flaw: its title is much too modest! It not only offers, in patient words and detailed pictures, a primer on ancient inca spinning and textile-making, it also spins a tale of ancient heritage and living craft. The book's generous sharing of textile knowledge deeply enriches your own textile practice on many levels.' Anne Pollard Rowe, Research Associate of Indigenous American Textiles at The Textile Museum, Washington, D.C.
