Here is a Entwinement blog that I found very helpful when I started playing with Shibori.
A book called "Dye & Discharge" by Sara Newberg King. It is available on Amazon. It is an older book, but has GREAT information about shibori using dyes and discharge...such as pole wrapping, spider web, star shapes, free-form shapes, ring dots, resist objects, and more.
Shibori: The Inventive Art of Japanese Shaped Resist Dyeing. It is 303 pages of instruction and pictures for all kinds of Shibori. If you are serious about the technique, this is the book to buy. Pole-Wrapping, Arashi meaning storm, begins on page 123.
