A bestseller for over 10 years, Fabric for Fashion: The Swatchbook is a unique resource with 142 swatches and yarns of the most recognized and widely used varieties of fabric to encourage consideration of not just their aesthetic appeal but also their structure, feel and weight. Natural fabrics such as cottons, silks, wools and linens are included, as are a wide range of manmade ones including alternative plant fibres like bamboo and hemp.

With accompanying information on fabrication, weights, construction, as well as yarn windings the book will help student fashion designers to make informed textile choices based upon an understanding of raw materials together with the processes that make up a fabric.
