When this blog first began, it featured all things quilty and was titled Art From The Heart. Years go by, interests morph, horizons expand, and all of a sudden you realize you are a quilter, yes...but also a spinner, weaver, knitter, crocheter, mixed media, fiber artist. The art is still from the heart, but the new name reflects my excitement with all things fiber! It's Fantabulous!
Procion fiber reactive dye, Kool Aid and/or food coloring.
Wool takes color so well, so fast, so satisfyingly! I may not be able to stop dyeing until my wool runs out... A few more days and the sap will rise up enough for me to start following the recipes for vegetative dyeing. I have always wanted to do that with wool, because I get some nice color on my cottons, but the pix of wool are much more gratifying. It seems like most of the recipes out there say, "You can get this and this and this color with wool! Oh, and good luck with cotton."
