More new colours

 'Duntroon' on 4ply alpaca,merino and nylon
 'Mount Cargill. above and 'Lake Dunstan' below also dyed on the 4ply blend.
 Plus a couple of shibori dyed scarves. The one above is handspun suri alpaca dyed with a base colour once the scarf was woven in a 4 shaft twill. The scarf was dried and steam pressed into pleats, folded with 'bulldog' clips attached to the pleats which causes the dye to resist in those areas.
The scarf below is also dyed and then folded and pressed pleats the length of the scarf. The pleats are tightly bound with cotton thread before dyeing in the second colour.
Well its officially spring here which usually means lots of different weather. Very windy today. Plenty of lambs jumping around the paddocks where we live. At least they've had a bit of sunshine as well as showers these last few days. Enjoying the lighter mornings.

Hi Doe,
It's almost Autumn here which is my favourite time of the beginnings and all that!
I wish I had your amazing talent for dyeing. Your yarns are just beautiful :-)
