I have been toying with the idea for a year now about starting to dye wool. I've read, researched, planned, collected supplies and yesterday I finally took the plunge.
Here is my first batch...and you get to see it first!
Aren't they gorgeous!!!??? Six different wools, same recipe.
If you live in the Carolinas and like to hook or make penny rugs or want to use it for applique, you know how hard it is to find it without ordering it on-line. And just like cotton fabric, it's much more fun to shop when you can touch it first!
Now I know why wool-dyers have a lot of "Out of Stock" listed on their websites. These 6 fat quarters took quite a while to do. Over an hour per pot and each pot only does 1/2 yard at a time! Plus trying to cook dinner and sew in-between!
Don't know where this will lead but it sure has been fun so far!
