Indigo Blues


Our Fiber Guild put on an Indigo Dying workshop this past Saturday. Soooo, I took a skein of white Alpaca I had and a silk cap I had sitting around. We wore our old clothes and learned the history of Indigo and how to process it. (Yeah, I kind of felt a tad OUT of my league here) Also had a tour of Jaye's beautiful dye garden (darn I left my camara at home -so if you want to see you'll have to visit SpinKitty or TerriKnitsAnd blogspots to see
what other goodies there were to see) Here is the finished product
the silk cap and the beautiful skein of blue Alpaca. Beautiful Stuff.
