My undyed wool stash (or about a quater of it ! )

My dye pot.





Drying in the wind.

lovely colours! Where do you get your Kool Aid from? I'm on the look out for some to dip dye some longies.

Natural dyes, wow, I've looked into those and they look rather complicated. Please let us know how you get on.

Oh, I love this so very much!
I can't wait to see your natural dyes!
What an incredible process, I hope to dye some of my hand spun yarn in the coming weeks!

Great photos! I love the color of your yarn! Do you sell it or is it just for personal use?

they are the most lovely colours! So stunning! I'd love a rainbow stash like that :)

I keep meaning to do more too buthave no plain wool... you reminded me to get some - what sort of wool do you use? I love merino blends but am not sure how well they dye compared with pure wool... prolly similar, I'll try :)
