A good day to dye


Almost autumn here in the UK – my carrot dye bath was hanging around from a few days ago so I added onion skins and a few bits of rusty iron and cooked it up. In went the Bluefaced Leicester fibre.

I’m building up a collection! Woad too on the right. September is going to be all about spinning.
