Colorways

In the studio, I’m trying different colorways for the rovings that’ll go to Rhinebeck (NY Sheep & Wool Festival). There will be an indigo blue dyed on mixed natural colored Coopworth. I did a little sampling on my drum carder and it looks awesome. The mill will have to resist the temptation to blend this into a homogenous color because the beauty is in the random color variations. The second colorway is a work in progress but I’m trying to keep the base color an earthy green. I’m going to use very pale grey Coopworth lambswool for the base. More on this as it develops. Boxes of natural colors have already gone off to the mill and should be coming back soon. Can’t wait to see the magic they’ve worked!
