Winter Solstice

Happy Winter Solstice!  We should be bundled up this time of year in Virginia, or, at least be wearing a coat.  Instead, it is nice enough outdoors to be wearing a t-shirt, shorts, and sandals.

What a fine day to do a bit of dyeing! I have so much fiber, but I decided that I was going to dye various odds and ends of white wool roving that was in my stash to use for blending. I also wanted to dye up all of the silk hankies that I have.

The shades of blue is Coopworth wool.
The other colors are are on unspecified breeds of wool although
I suspect that the pink/green/yellow is Merino.

This was my first time dyeing silk hankies and it was so much fun!
This is almost 5 ounces of silk.
What a gift to be able to be outdoors this time of year!
