As I like using natural products, I'd also like to dye some of my white fleece with natural pigments. Does anyone have tips/websites on plants/fruits/other that would be useful?

Try Resurrection Fern. She dyes with naturals all the time, I'm sure browsing her blog will give me many great tips.

OSPREY WIFE I love plying with thread, too. I just spun up some thick and thin bamboo/merino yesterday and I think it's getting some white thread to go with it. It makes it all wavy!

LAUGHING LARK I love those colors! They do look like a sunset, or a really yummy frozen treat! SHERBET! Mm, I haven't had breakfast yet!

And Angry Hippie, as always, you make me happy. That giant yarn would make a fun rug, but I don't know how it would hold up to wear.

Wow, that's a lot of yarn/spinning!  Shocked Great work, all! (of course, it isn't fair to call it "work"...  Smiley)
Just as evidence that I did do some spinning this week, here's some that's in-progress:

The gorgeous fiber is from Modern Spin (freestyle).

I'm living/working in Yosemite Nat'l Park til Mid-May! Blogging about it here. No swapping for me, and minimal crafting time, til summer. Almost done with library school! That sums things up for now.
