Wool Fiber Dying with the Southern Tier Lamb to Loom Fiber Arts Guild
This past summer my fiber arts guild met at one of the member's farm to do some fiber dying. I am not a spinner, but I like to do needle felting. I wanted lots of colors - but didn't need vast quantities of any one color. I chose to do a rainbow in some of my mom's old canning jars. While watching my pot simmer (not boil), I thought I was alone in the barn, much to my surprise I heard noises from behind and saw that I had a visitor! A couple of furry ladies also peeked in to see what I was up to. After waiting 24 hours and some gentle rinsing, I hung out my roving to dry on my front trees.
