This week I experimented with embroidery using naturally dyed yarn samples. The pillows are all wool but feel pretty soft.
I worked up a sample of the purple cotswold. I'm trying to spin a thicker yarn.
This week I also washed 5 lbs of shetland. I'm really excited about this fleece, it's so soft! I washed it in the kitchen sink (which is really small) and it took two days to get it all done. This morning the glass lid of our top loading washer shattered. I'll be calling the manufacturer tomorrow. Can you imagine if glass shattered into a fleece?!? Yikes! Glad I washed this fleece in the sink.
