This weekend I dyed wool with an indigo bath, something I hadn’t done in about 5 years.  I used to dye hemp & cottons back then, so this was a first with the wool, which I prefer.


scoured & soaked fibres lined up & ready


The first dip…


then they dry & air out for 2 days before rinsing.

I didn’t get good photos of the process but it was fairly thrilling for me & the colours are incredible.  I’ve started to spin some up, super fine to learn some yarn plying.
