Fibre soaking in preparation for dyeing.

Fibre soaking in preparation for dyeing.

It’s been a long time since I’ve had a dye day.  Today is the day. I am soaking wool and rayon fibres to dye using a spot dye method.  I’m making up the colours as I go. This could be very hit and miss.  I looked through all my fibre yesterday and decided this was unavoidable.  I have the fibre to dye, so that’s not an issue.  It’s just I have a lot of fibre in the house right now…but very little spot dye, and I think the background to Rose Hips really calls for spot dyeing.

Aside from the dye job today I have gym this morning and a lunchtime meeting to attend. A bunch of women are getting together to sew reusable sanitary napkins for women in Kenya.  Apparently there is a shortage.  The meeting today is to finalize a design before we embark on some production sewing at Crafting.
