Does anyone know of any good books or websites that deal with traditional Nordic fiber arts, particularly how they prepared wool for spinning? I tried Google, but I do not have the gift of Google-fu, and kept coming upon bad reviews for a website called Nordic Fiber Arts.

Thanks!

Okay. I am not sure how much any of this will help, but here are some sites my google-fu pulled up [I searched for "traditional nordic spinning techniques"]

http://www.isbona.com/library.html

Maybe that will give you a place to start anyway?

Wow, thanks so much! I noted a couple of book titles I will have to track down, and the Swedish Textile School site has lots of good resources.
