Monday Mary of Fancy Fibers Farm brought me some luscious clean, clean, clean mohair locks to play with in the dye pot. When I it comes to dyeing I am like Peter Rabbit, "please, throw me in the briar patch". Soft peach and pink tones have been eluding me, so I went after it. I am still not totally satisfied, but what comes from the dye pot is never wrong, just maybe not quite on target. I still love these colors and love them together.
Look for these to show up at Cordova Studios in little one ounce packs for you to play with. I think I want to use them to do some more lock spinning like I did with my "Clementine" yarn.
Below is a shot of what the locks looked like spread out on the drying racks. That hot pink is a bit of mystery wool I dyed in a mystery pink dye pot. Love the surprises.
What colors would you like to see next???
I'm a sure enough Dallas native who spent a good part of my life in northern New Mexico, where I learned the arts of spinning, weaving, and dyeing. Combining those skills with my long time love, knitting, is what I do best these days.
