What do you do with a school snow day? Dye wool of course.
On a recent snow day we got out some carded lamb's wool batts and tried some kool-aid and easter egg dyeing.
We used tiny sponge rollers that came in some kind of paint-on easter egg dyes a few years back. They seemed to work really well.
Everyone got in on the artistic fun.
Then saran wrap and to the microwave.
Then to the drying rack.
The left over dyes went to locks for a canning box of color!
Pics of spun dyed batts to follow soon.
