Lookie what the postie brought me this morning!!!

Oooooo am in woolly heaven!!!

The big pile at the back is British organic merino Aran and the 5 skeins at the front are Australian organic merino Aran!!
Look out for loads of delicious colours coming to BDazzlers soon!!!!

Tropical Sunrise

2 skeins of organic merino hand dyed with kool aid available to buy in the store now!

Earthhues dyed skeins

some organic merino hand dyed with natural earth hues dyes.

I did a skein in each of the darker colour ways and then did another skein in the same dyes just diluted a bit!
The yellow and grey skeins were dyed with fustic and logwood Grey
The pink and purple skeins with lac, madder and logwood purple
I think I will use the lighter yellow/grey combo for the legs of those longies and am thinking alternate stripes for the pink/purple skeins....keep your eyes peeled at the next Buy WAHM Month!

Pastel Chic

My little box of tricks!

...or not so little! lol

On the left is quite a good selection of ready mixed colours of procion and acid dyes. On the right at the top primary colours and black acid dye which are brilliant for mixing to achieve some stunning colourways. In the middle is just a small collection of earthhues natural dyes....I am planning on trying lots more!
At the bottom right is my very depleted stash of Kool aid..very much in need of a re stock!
