April Showers

I know April showers are supposed to bring May flowers, but if the showers happen to be snow showers like we’ve been getting lately then it’s much more useful if they bring brightly colored wool.

I’ve been dyeing up a storm.

There’s fluffy roving in every flavor:

Looks like cotton candy, but it’s better for you – fewer calories, more fiber!

There’s a whole spectrum of sock yarn:

And there’s a rainbow of silks for good measure:

If you’d like to see firsthand how to get these colors and more using all natural dyes (as well as all of the other aspects of fiber processing), come to the Littleton Museum’s Sheep to Shawl event this Saturday.  I’ll be dyeing in the summer kitchen.  Stop by and say hello!
