Gul uld, første forsøg -- Yellow wool, first round
Her hænger den 1. portion til tørre på min kæmpe vaskepose. Den er syet af et stykke gammelt gardin kun til at centrifugere uld i.
Now my delicious white wool has been rinsed, scoured, washed, rinsed again, dryed, carded and finally dyed with Saint John's wort from my stock of herbs. I dyed 3 small batts 3 different yellow hues. Now I just have to card, spin and knit the wool. I'm hoping for a variegated yarn, and I'm looking forward to it.
Here is the first batt drying on my giant laundry bag, which I made from an old curtain for the spinning of wool in a washing mashine.
