I knew I had to work with Frida Kahlo’s palette. I had visited her Casa Azul in Mexico City a few years ago. The place is converted into a museum and filled with her personal belongings and walls painted in cobalt blue. Frida Kahlo was born in that same house and lived with husband Diego Rivera. So, I decided to work with Milk Protein Fiber because it takes the dyes so intensely…like Frida’s paintings…
I’m hoping I can have the time to work with the real size roving very soon. It has been raining a lot and everything gets too long to get dry. Meanwhile I was able to work on some carded batts and post them in my Etsy shop.
This is Springtime. Blend of merino, silk, angelina, milk protein fiber and more fun stuff. I think I’m starting to get tired of foggy days and wet days, I need color!
This is Prenup. Or should I have called it “Worst case scenario”? Blue Face Leicester with Milk Protein Fiber, angelina, merino. Fun stuff…
Facemask. Merino, Firestar, Angelina.
Still Life. Another wonderful blend of Merino, but this time a add some Masham which is a crossbreed between Teeswater sheep and Dalesbred.
