Another Two Days of Wooly Fun


The whole reason for the weekend


Eco dying class-picking out plant materials


rolling up the silk scarf with plants


steaming silk bundles


my finished scarves

We also did some flower pounding, which was great fun but very noisy.  Not sure I will do this at home, but it produced some interesting results.  Now I have to wait another whole year to take more classes and overdose on all the wonderful wooly goodness that is at Wisconsin's Sheep and Wool Festival.

  1. We took the Bengala dye class - cold water dye made from dirt - pretty interesting - would have love to eco dye, maybe next year.

  2. I've seen this technique a few times now and each time I am just amazed with the result of dyeing with plants.
