Indigo Dyeing

We had a lot of fun at out spinning group, while Jan explained Indigo Dyeing to us.  We all bought along some wool, fibre, cotton hankies and other things to dip into the dye pot.
See our day together on the Doncaster & Templestowe Spinners and Weavers Group

I took some of the fibre that I had spun at my Learn to Spin classes at the Guild.  It was interesting to see the different shades of blue that came out of the dye pot, depending how long you left it in the dye pot, and whether it was one of the first of last pieces to be dipped.
