Sunday Sounds: Color and Cohen

Color and Cohen

I’m getting ready for Okfiberfest so the dye pots are on!  I like to dye several types of fiber at once with the same color to use as the base fibers for my batts.  I start by breaking the roving into 2 oz pieces for ease of handling then I place a little rubber band on the end of each. I color code the rubber bands by fiber type so I can have merino, superwash/nylon, targhee, polwarth, etc., all in the same dye pot and still tell them apart when I’m done.

Steamy wool and steamy music!

Today’s music is Leonard Cohen.  His voice has aged like a fine scotch, so smooth and warm on a breezy spring morning.

Check back soon to pictures of the finished batts for Okfiberfest!

  1. I have been spinning almost every day for about a year and a half. I am spinning a beautiful bag of Mulberry silk, Tussah silk, bamboo and merino in a peach/apricot colorway. I have struggled spinning silk, I have some bamboo but have not tried spinning it yet, merino I have spun! The carding of this bat is just heavenly and it spins like a dream. Thank you so much for being at okfiberfest!

  2. Thanks Linda!
    It was lovely to meet you at Okfibrfest. I’m so glad you like my batts,
    I would love to see pictures of what you’ve created with them!
