I had 4 skeins, each approximately 60-70 grams, of hand spun undyed wool. Excellent to try out some natural dyeing. In the past I promised myself only to dye with natural dyes after I had done a workshop. But the workshop has still to be done. I bought some books instead, browsed the internet for more information and to buy some ingredients. After that I dyed the hand spun. I still don't know whether it was a bit disappointing or not. On the other hand it was the very first time to use natural dyes, so there is still a lot to discover and learn.
The wool is of unknown sheep. The lady who did spin it has five sheep, but did not tell me the breed and I did not ask for it.
The wool is a bit rough, I am planning to knit Dory a skirt out of it.... albeit she is currently very picky with what to wear and, above all, what not. Unfortunately hand knit items are in her prohibited list.
Left to the right: dyed in madder root (I used only a little), annatto seed second dyebath, annatto seed first dyebath, rhubarb root.
