Our dye process/choices
Our dye process/choices

I am not a typical fiber dyer by any stretch of the imagination! I do not keep recipes or instructions, it is just add dye to the dye pots and wa-la, whatever comes out is just too fun!

I use a combination of any dyes I can get my hands on, including Rit, Easter egg dye, food coloring, Wilton cake icing dyes (not the candy dyes), kook aid,commercial dyes and sometimes natural dye if I can squeeze time in for that too!

I am a bit heavy handed with the dyes so even though I rinse and spin the wool/fiber out after it is cooled, there may be some additional dye that rinses out after spinning, during felting or washing a knit item. The colors ARE color fast, I am just as I said, a bit liberal!!

News Update

7/28/14- The sheep are enjoying some breezy, not so humid days. Even doing a little tanning of tummies and legs? Whoa!

They are also working on a new blog. We can get into the old one but not to edit or add to it. It will stay on our site as 'archives'. Lots to do lots to do.

Our next update will be Wednesday, July 30. If you are looking for something you don't see on the site, just send an email on over!

Smooches from the sheep!
