Spinning and Dyeing

Now that the bathroom is finished, huge sigh of relief, I have been able to work on the border leicester fleece that I bought several months ago, It was very greasy but after several soaks is looking, feeling and smelling a whole lot better. I found our old electric cooking pan in the loft and as we no longer need it for the caravan I am using it for yarn dyeing, very portable as its on legs and can plug in anywhere. These are my first test batches, the skein is from some of the same yarn dyed by another member of the Kent Guild. This is a beautiful soft and lustrous yarn and lovely to spin and knit with.
