Well here are the results from last summer. I love how the combed top turned out!
I then decided to take my fresh indigo leaves and dye a mini skein. That turned out good but I learned that I need to gather a lot more leaves. So off to the garden I went and I decided to try and dye some wool.
It truly amazes me what colours nature provides. I don’t see myself ending this journey anytime soon.
