I had a crafty weekend last Saturday and Sunday and spent quite a bit of time washing and dyeing fibre.
I recently bought a bid bag of lovely English Leicester locks and after separating and washing the locks I dyed them using a mix of powered acids dyes in various shades of blue and a hint of purple. Thinking of trying to spin this into embroidery thread… something I have never done before, so should be fun 🙂
I went a bit overboard with the dyeing, so I’ve listed some of the locks in my etsy shop.
Ill post photos of the spun thread in a few days 🙂
