Fiber Friday

We had a fun day today. We played with fiber and dyes. A group of 8 of us got together at my house and dyed fiber - wool and silk as well as silk scarves and silk fabric. It was such fun.

Here's several concentrating hard on the dye placement.

Here's all our dye packages going in to the pot to steam.

Here's a beautiful piece of silk.

Here's a scarf. I overdyed a bunch of scarves that had not been selling in the store.

Then several people wanted to see how to nuno felt and I showed them the way I do that with a sander. It seems that I didn't get any photos of the wool or silk fiber. But we did dye a bunch. Once I've gotten my scarves dried and ironed, I'll take some photos to show you.

That looks like fun and beautiful colors.
I got some good white cotton so I can try some more dying.
