A Day For COLOR !!!

Thought I would share what I am doing in my studio today......that would be hand dyeing my mohair! Hmmm, sometimes it's fun and sometimes it's a chore, but today was fun because it is a perfect sunny warm day and what better conditions to get some hand dyeing done. The wet fabric can lay in the grass outside to dry.... and my studio stays clean and drip free. Got some new colors going. There is 4 shades of grey along with an old faded black and then a darker pink. The colors darken up a bit after they are dry, but they are looking good so far. Well, back to work....and you guys thought I didn't actually dye this stuff myself ! hehe ----

Can't wait to see what you create from the newly dyed goodies, especially the black. I adore your little friends.They look like treasured companions that comforted from bumps in the night. Susan
