More listings on etsy

I put a couple of more things up on etsy today…..

I’m really happy with the eco print scarves and the piece of eco printed wool that I listed. Not as happy with the shawl. Don’t get me wrong…… it has a wonderful ‘hand’, and is so soft and cuddly! But the colors are a bit mousy.  I need to dye some more yarns in deeper more saturated colors.

In the meantime, after I weave off the scarf that is on my loom, I might weave  something out of my left over stash of aniline dyed cottons to get a color fix.

    • Hi Ginny!! I was just thinking about you last night after I saw a photo on Pat’s blog!
      I buy coarse sea salt and use that. Except for when I was up at my daughter’s wedding and we drove to the coast and I was able to anoint my fabric in the real ocean!
      Amounts? ha ha ha ….. you should know me better than that! I never keep track. But I think that I use roughly a cup and a half per pot of the salt and a big glug or two of vinegar from a gallon bottle of vinegar. I warm the water up (rain water) until the salt dissolves….. then soak my fabric in it until I’m ready to do my bundles.
      I tried using ‘dead sea salts’ on my last bundles…. they didn’t turn out so well. BUT it could have been the wool gauze fabric I was using. AND I forgot to use vinegar!
      OH…. try dipping your leaves in a solution of egg and rust water. Or just rust water. It helps!
      So nice to hear from you Ginny!! I’ve missed our chats!
      hugs
      Julie
      I’ll write more when I get home from work!
