We had some lovely naturally dyed yarn to show off this week and the colours were so nice. Natural colours just mix together. It doesn’t matter what the colours are. Nature has this way of toning colours in with each other. Top left is Cathy’s Tasmanian Blue Gum (Silver Dollar) wool batt which she got from Alexis plied with Border Leicester X. She’ll be using that in her blanket. Bottom left is Erica’s commercial wool dyed with onion skins. The rich burnt orange colour always attracts attention. To the right is Alexis’ Tansmanian Blue Gum dyed wool bats which she has spun and is knitting into top down , heelless , spiral socks. The colour and pattern are very effective and the socks are thick but soft. They look lovely. The only shaping is in the toes. There is a nice, free, heelless sock pattern from Paton’s if you are interested.
