It’s a dull, dreary, rainy kind of day here today so it means being inside. I did go out into the yard and into the woods to gather lichen from the trees and rocks. I want to use it to dye wool to spin. I love using natural dyes. I’ve used onion skins, beets, raspberries & black walnuts so far and I’m up for another challenge. The Lichen being one & I’m thinking Rhododendron, Queen Anne’s Lace, Poke Weed & Sumac to name a few.
I spent some time this morning spinning my own Wool Moire thread, something I hadn’t done before. I love the nubby, rustic texture I got with the Shetland Moorit. The Morino wool is very smooth with little texture. I will have to add more wool types in my stash.
