Dyers Chamomile, fresh flower heads, alum mordant, pure Finn fleece (white), equals delightful soft lemony fibre – limitless projects, especially for babies and small children. Finn has no prickle factor that some don’t like with wool. Actually, well prepared wool with the short fibres and rubbish removed should not cause any discomfort to the skin (exception are those with allergies).
There still seemed to be some colour left in the pot, immersed some merino/corriedale fleece but think I may have pushed my luck as the colour is very washed out, though the photographs don’t illustrate the differences in the shades for each of the fibres. It will be interesting to see the results of the finished products. Colours of fibre darken when spun, so even the palest fibres can look quite different as yarns.
