My Wool Palette

Working on a color palette can be difficult for me because I always tend to use every possible color combination on one garment, but I think I finally settled on a few colors and I’m liking it. I also love the drape of the 5mm silk chiffon.

To dye or not to dye

I’m trying to decide whether they should be dyed or leave them au naturel.

I got the white wool from a friend that I haven’t met yet, but we communicate via email. She lives very close from me, so I’m planning to meet her sometime this year. The wool felts so nice.

Some shop update

It has been a while since I updated my poor shop. For some reason I haven’t find the time to do it. Shame on me! Excuses, Excuses! I’ve had this roving ready to be photograph since last week. My intention is to have this for sale by tomorrow. For some reason I’ve been working on some very deep color ways. Can we manifest emotions, fear of thoughts through color? Or maybe our moods? Our spirits gets lifted when we see a beautiful rainbow, green is the color of energy, growth and hope, white is peace and purity. Blue is cooling and red warm. One nice thing about working with colors and creating new colorways is that my mind travels thousands of miles away into magical and exotic places. I like to think about what people wear and the colors of food and spices.

Fig Garden

I called this colorway Fig Garden. This is superwash merino and Tencel.

Mushroom hunting

This is Mushroom Hunting. Superwash merino and Tencel. Where the name came from? My friend Russel is an expert on mushrooms and he came to visit us some time ago. He goes to the Sierra Nevada to collect mushrooms to study and to eat. So, he came to visit us and brought some wonderful wild mushrooms that we ate with eggs for breakfast. That was such a treat!!!

This is 100 % feltable merino wool.  This is called mystery.
