Felted Fleece. Very Sad
I have dyed 6 batches so far. The other 5 were done using the "cold-pour" method. For those of you not familiar with dyeing, I put the dye stock on, wrapped it in plastic wrap and steamed it.
For this fleece, I used the "hot pour" method. I used the book "Twisted Sisters' Sock Workbook" by Lynne Vogel. Since this involves bringing a dye bath up to 190 degrees, and since I haven't had felting problems with the other method, I assume this is where I went wrong. As I say, I was extremely careful, so I am pretty leery of trying again.
On the raw food side, I am really enjoying my fenugreek sprouts. I was introduced to them by my friend Angela last summer. Otherwise, I wouldn't have ever come across them as I live in a raw-food-black-hole and have to search out sources for these things. They are delicious and easy to sprout in my Easy Sprout. I have two Easy Sprouts and keep them going on a rotation, growing all kinds of sprouts. My favorite is fenugreek. Try them. You'll love 'em!
