Hi well here is what I have been up to.
Here is SOME of the raw/unwashed/straight off the sheeps back fiber, I am still in the process of cleaning it. She gave me alot! And yes, that is indeed more in the bag, but that is the really coarse wool, I am not by any means going to discard it, I will use it for testing washes and dyes. See!!! Sometimes I am a smart cookie :]
Here is the first batch of the GOOD fiber that I washed, a small amount cause it was my first time and I didn't want to felt anything, it smells like a mixture of farm, and dawn dish soap, but hey I like it
I mean it doesnt smell nearly as bad as it did before I washed it lol.
Blue and Pink Romney from Limerick Fibers, 2 oz. each color
Orange Unknown fiber, really soft from Limerick Fibers, 2 oz. but I am going to try to sneak back this weekend and if she has anymore I want it!!!
Yellow Romney from Limerick Fibers, 2 oz.
Name: Tequilla Sunrise
Fiber: Unknown orange soft fiber
yardage: around 70-90
Tonight I tried to dye some of the washed fiber, came out ok
St. Patty's day green, dyed with Flavor Aid, which is the cheap foodlion brand of Kool Aid. Smells SOOO YUMMY like GREEN APPLES!!!
Faded Glory Red, dyed with RIT dye in colorway Scarlet
Here are all 39 rolags of the Teal romney blended with the recycled Lions Boucle yarn. The boucle makes it alot softer. My converse show box for size comparison.
Thanks for looking, hope everything works out, and I don't have school friday so I am going to be glued to your yarns and fiber goodies all day long!!!
