Hand painted braid & handspun

Recently, I experimented with dyeing a braid of wool, so I thought I would share some snapshots of the process. 

I started with 4oz of natural Southdown. I hand painted the braid and then steamed set the dye on the stove. After letting it dry, I spun two bobbins of singles and plied them together. It was such a fun learning process, and I’m looking forward to experimenting with dyes more.
