Six bags of fleece arrived yesterday. Mervyn Norris from Trean House Farms graciously dropped it off for us at our little rental house just outside of Malin. We are anxious to start cleaning and carding the wool in preparation for next weeks spinning classes and "spin in" next weekend. Keep your eye on the blog for more details!
Can't wait to get my hands on that! :)ReplyDelete
Will you be dying the wool as well?ReplyDelete
I had at one time learned to dye wool with vegetable dyes made from lichens and mosses. I have not given that any thought for a long while, so don't remember much. But boiling. Lots and lots of boiling.
I think that we are just going to be leaving it white since there is so much of it. It's really beautiful once it's all washed up. There may be some experimentation though. There is a lot of lichens and moss in this area!ReplyDelete
