Thursday eve: Teasing plant dyed sheep's wool
We had a lovely gathering in the bothy last Thursday night: On Tuesday Heather and Alison were dyeing different shades in yellow, using onion skin. Heather brought the yellow wool into the bothy and spread it on the table. It looked so very beautiful when the sunny yellow wool was spread out. (Sorry, I didn't make a photo of it, but will take one next time.) Sitting around the table everybody got involved in teasing the wool to prepare it for carding and then spinning. A crowd of happily chatting women were filling the bothy. It was a very relaxed evening.
