Fall is coming fast and I’m not ready. I have this gorgeous white Merino wool and the soft brown Shetland Moorit to spin. It will make the most beautiful Iceland Sweater for the winter months.
I learned knitting when I was a child from my Grandmother and my Mom. I am thankful for the many lessons and now that I have learned to spin things have come to fruition. A local farm has offered me Sheep wool coming this Fall and Alpaca come this Spring. That will be another learning curve for me to learn the process of skirting, washing & carding all of the beautiful wool. I’m a happy camper!
Dreary wet morning here today in New England. Makes for a good dying day. I have loaded 2 huge stock pots with 2 pounds of Queen Anne’s Lace and the house smells so lemony. I’m looking to get a nice yellow/gold color from these batches to dye some wool for spinning. I have already done a batch of black beans and got a gorgeous color blue and did a batch with dried black walnuts saved from last year. I love the colors from natural dyes.
