You may recall this dyed warp from a week ago which I said was too bright. I warped up yesterday and yes it is too bright.
So I thought I would inspect my fine wool stash just in case. And I found four large spools of fine Cheviot Handspun which I had dyed darkish blue with indigo. I have no memory of this but my records show that I got it from Rosie Price in 2008.
And this is what the fabric looks like woven up. Much darker, subdued even, but much better. IThe scarf will be more blue than brown but it is nice. There is plenty of the weft yarn. I wonder what project I had in mind for it. I put 250 gms in skeins, dyed them and wound them onto spools.
So that's where my fine white wool for waistcoats went!!!!ReplyDelete
