Today our weather is unseasonably hot!
The bright side to this heat wave is that my fibre and yarn dry incredibly fast. This is something that only happens on a rare occasion on Vancouver Island!
Tonight I am mordanting Superwash Merino/Bamboo/Nylon combed top.
…as I write this I’m also holding a stick for Bentley; our Welsh terrier who is three years old. He tends to run the show around here being a terrier! Do you have a welsh terrier? I’d love to hear your stories.
So back to fibre…
Though I dye with acid dyes (Dharma and Greener Shades) I am also branching out into natural dyes. I’m excited to see where this road takes me! I really have my heart set on dyeing 100% combed top (that will be happening next week when my lingerie bags arrive) and multicolored yarns with plant extracts and indigo from my garden. I can’t wait!
I also have a Yarrow plant too!
Well I better go and turn my pots off and let them cool over night. Have a good evening.
