These are varying shades of eucalyptus dyed fibre, various fleece types, corriedale, merino, as well as angora bunny, cria (baby) alpaca. To achieve these shades, I used different species of eucalyptus leaves, some from different suburbs and country areas. Other elements that effect results include, the type of dye pot used, how long the leaves simmered to extract the dye as well as the fibre used and length of time left in the dye pot for take up of colour. Never being one to write copious notes, I am unable to give details, generally just like to ‘wing’ it and get a surprise.
Hoping to read posts from those in the pathway of ‘Irene’ soon, so that I know all is well in that part of the world and the storm has passed, hopefully without causing too much damage. Local news has shown us some flooding in Lower Manhattan and Long beach, but not much more. May everyone be safe. Am thinking of you all and wishing you well. Take care.
