Another Bag of Wool

During renovations I have been combing a raw fleece (when I woke up too early to make noise around the house).


I ended up with 562g of clean fibre. I plan on dyeing about half of it shades of grey, maybe some black, and drum carding it all back together, with some small bits of dyed silk noil or sari silk for a bit of a pop of colour.



There will be enough for a sweater.

We have had some new birds at the feeder this week -

A Red-headed Woodpecker-


and a Canada Goose -


Some other birds that I didn't get photos of are and Ovenbird, Northern Oriole, Gray Catbird, Rose-breasted Grosbeak and a House Wren.

Flowers have really been blooming -
This is a Plum Tree -


It smells so nice.

Tulips -

Narcissus -

Lily of the Valley-

All the best!♥︎

How interesting that you do all that work to create wool for your projects. I would not know where to begin.
