We Have Been Busy Creating Color

This winter we have been busy making colors on knitting yarns and wool for felt making here in the studio.   We are working with both natural dye colors and fiber reactives in order to please a range of customers.  The colors drying outside in the sunshine are pleasing to tourists passing by.  The dye pots afford a hamam like feeling inside the shop at times.  We also aquired a new old Juki sewing machine which I am thrilled doesnt even blink when sewing layers of felt.  Some of the new colors are finding their way into our daily feltwork as well.
