New Items in Shop

I have finally got round to stocking up my shop. All the items listed have been coloured using natural dyes. I have sat on them for a long time (at least a year) because I wanted to see what would happen with the passing of time and I am happy to report that they have remained the same as the day they were dyed. I obviously cannot vouch for long term light/wash fastness but this is probably true for all types of dye whatever the source. Here is a sample of some of my stock;Image

Dyeing

I am taking advantage of the dry weather and dyeing on an almost industrial scale. Yesterday it was Golden RodP1020123

Today it is Brazilwood. Am hoping for the lovely claret colour I usually get. Looking promising

It comes in off the line in a glorious tangle

P1020125

And has to be tamed and ordered ready to sell

P1020126

I guess I am getting closer to being open for business again!
