Monday

After a busy weekend it is time to get back to some fleece.  This white fleece has been sitting outside on the stable porch since spring and was just calling to be dyed.
It needed a very good soaking just to remove the surface crud.
I'd already mixed some orange dye with water and gradually added the wool.  I want to felt it later but handled the wet wool carefully as I don't want to felt it quite yet.
After a gentle stir I put it on the burner.  We'll see what kind of orange I get on this pretty cream colored fleece.
