Dyeing up a storm this week...

Hand dyed silk fibre in packs stacked in colourful columns | Sally Ridgway | Shop Wool, Felt and Fibre Online


After a very hectic week last week I continued on head first into a lengthy dyeing week this week. Phew, I am glad it almost over!

Every day involved dyeing some of my Merino wool tops as well as a large pile of Mulberry silk cocoon sheets as well as another big lot of Mulberry silk throwsters waste. This fibre is really popular so I often have to stock up the colours. 

The Mulberry silk throwster is now packed, photographed and will soon be listed on the website. Mulberry silk takes colour very well and the vibrant colours are always fun to pick and combine. Usually I will use 3 colours to make sure there are other subtle colour changes where they mix and combine, this makes a wonderful combination of colours to use and blend into works.
