First post of the week. Goodness it has been hectic. I have spent most of the weekend “space dyeing” wool and silk. Space dyeing is how you get the variegated effect on the fibre. I have about 30 colour ways in the space dyed and about the same in the submerged dyed fibre. 1 kilo (at least) of fibre by up to 60 colour ways certainly is full on and takes several weeks to process. Now, to get it all dry so that I can do the next lot. Four that are dry are shown below. Hard to believe they all start out the same colour isn’t it?
