Reviews

"The last few years have unspooled us all. Peggy Orenstein gathers us close, then weaves something hopeful and new in this surprisingly moving yarn about yarn." -- Bonnie Tsui, bestselling author of Why We Swim and American Chinatown

"Unraveling is a delight. A meditation on life, and how, if we miss a step (or a stitch), our lives (our sweaters) can unravel at record speed. Funny, moving, and brilliantly written and researched. I will never look at sheep again without a sense of wonder and awe." -- Julianna Margulies

"A charming memoir of a quietly transformative year." -- Kirkus Reviews

"This snapshot of creative self-discovery will enlighten readers." -- Publishers Weekly
