I’ve reached the end of the warp! 😳 Yikes! I feel like the end of the warp always sneaks up on me.

Face Cloths

The texture of these face cloths for Wildcare is so deLIGHT-full! The weft is a lovely cotton-linen that I dyed with cochineal and black walnuts. https://www.hellowildcare.com

Sigh of relief

We have a long way to go as a country, but if we keep fighting, change will come. Love your fellow human beings. Seek truth!

In today’s daily workings, here we have freshly dyed and wound balls for my next project chilling on my current project. All of the fibers here were naturally dyed, the balls are cochineal and black walnut dyed cotton-linen and on the loom is a seacell-merino-silk blend dyed with a myriad of natural dyes.

Rinsing Skeins

Rinsing the cochineal dyed fibers in our hot springs water. Underneath the town of #truthorconsequences flows a #hotsprings aquifer, in some places only a few feet under the surface of the ground. We are lucky enough to have a shallow well and 98 degree water, which is perfect for summer splashing, or rinsing naturally dyed yarn. Our tub is set up so that the water drains through channels watering fruit trees, our Jerusalem Artichoke bed, cactus and agaves.
