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.
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!
