Hemp Roving Drying in the Sun!
Laying out on my back patio, catching a few rays, these two shades of hemp turned out brilliantly. Nice even color in a gorgeous Marigold and Avocado Green; they should be in my shop by tomorrow.
I tend to drag my heels when it comes to dyeing cellulose fibers. I whine about the extra steps and dealing with the mordants and all. Then they come out of the dye pot looking so gorgeous and I think "Man, I should dye some more!"
