My fingers have a slight blue tinge I should have put the gloves on when I was doing the rinsing but you know I was just going to do one or two and leave the rest for tomorrow but then I had to see what they all looked like so now the slight blue tinge and a lovely bundle of wool is ready.
Here is the before shot, I couldn't get cream wool the closest I could get was a light grey.
But from these humble beginnings I got these yummy colours. The fabrics in the top photo are Drs Flannel which has a looser weave than the other wool and didn't felt as well, but the colours are clearer as it was cream to start with. I'll give it a go and see how it works on some projects though. The bottom photo is the wool pictured above. I am happy with them not with the fact that I ended up with a heap of orange though. That what happens when the kids get involved and I am trying to keep them from being head to toe in a colour other than what they naturally come in. Might overdye a couple a darker red if I get a chance today.
