First dye pot of Spring

The little coat is made and the first dye pot of Spring has been concocted. A lovely way to spend Easter weekend.

For this one I have used a mixture of gorse and daffodil to give depth to the beautiful Spring yellow. The child’s coat is made from organic Wensleydale wool – from Ystrad Organic’s flock – and here it is before the plunge:

Soon I will post an image of the finished article which is a beautiful colour but hard to capture with my little camera. Later!
