Flowers & Fleece


Holly – Gulf Coast, Amber – GCNI, and a Border Leicester Wearing Flower Dye

Clockwise from left: Gulf Coast Dyed with Coreopsis, Purple Ruffles Basil, Goldenrod, and GCNI with Coreopsis. (Border Leicester locks in Basil and Coreopsis on Right.)

These fibers were all dyed in the locks. Holly’s fleece was washed using the fermented suint method, so there is a good deal of lanolin in the wool. The wool took the dye just fine. Amber, the GCNI, as well as the Border Leicester locks were washed with no soap Vet shampoo prior to dyeing.
