Book of Yarn: The Encyclopedia of Yarn
The Knitter's Book of Yarn: The Ultimate Guide to Choosing, Using, and Enjoying Yarn
The best yarn book you'd ever read. This is not a typical knitting book with info about yarns and patterns (well it has that too) but it deals with origin, treatment, and final outcome of the yarn when it appears on the shop-shelves. It's more of reference book but very readable. I am sure you won't be able to put it down until you have finished the last page.
Well written, very explanatory and worth reading.
If you are a not just a knitter but a complete knitting lover, you may definitely consider buying this book. Two thumbs way up!
