Lambchop

lamby and skylar copyboggs hill 2 ply neutralReceived a picture of what was made from  some long wool sheep in its’ natural color that I spun. 2 ply with a variegated earth tone cotton.  This fall she should be warm and fashionable. Remember Shari Lewis and her sidekick Lambchop?

I had a glass of red wine that I am trying on a handful of wool fiber. I read it is a stain and not a dye. So that means it’s not colorfast. Can’t find any info on making it permanent. Guess will need to experiment.

Noticing the chicory weeds are out and about. Thinking of going collecting. The leaves are used in a dye bath…resulting in a blue dye.  ?????? what mordant to use…should I add something to the dye bath??????

My rhubarb dyed fiber is dry and in need of a soapy bath. The fiber has a strange smell. Looking forward to seeing the final outcome and spinning some up.
