On Sunday, we went to a wool dyeing party at the home of one of our spinning guild members. It was my first experience with dyeing wool roving, and what a fun time it was! I took some pictures of the festivities, and here they are!
Here are a whole lot of painted rovings drying on the fence!
Here are some beautiful hand-dyed yarns!
These rovings are my personal efforts at hand-painting. I was quite pleased with the way they turned out!
Kelly's painted roving is the brownish-green one between the purple and white one and the blue one.
Some folks brought their spinning wheels and did some spinning while waiting for their dyed fiber to dry.
We enjoyed a lovely lunch of smoked chicken and smoked baked beans by one of the hosts! After that we came home and hung our painted fiber (or fibre, depending on your spelling rules!) in the basement to dry. I am quite pleased with the results and can't wait to try spinning it!
An all-around good day!
