Dyeing wool

Orange dyed wool

I can hardly believe how long it's been since I've posted. Molly and Micha, this one's for you! I think since the UFO challenge got completed, everything seems a little ho-hum.

However I did get to take a wool dyeing class last weekend! It was really interesting. I don't know if it's something I can do myself later (lots of supplies and tools I don't have), but it was fun! Now, the instructor took the wool home to steam set it (one of those tools). So I'm just waiting to get it back - I can't wait to see how it turns out!

That sounds like a dangerous new hobby :) You'll have to share once you get it back, say maybe August's meeting :)

I think you can set died wool in the microwave. I have some articles from a British knitting magazine if you are interested.
