Starting our Raffle Blanket

  Ewes plan the blanket to be made to raffle at the 2015 Exhibition. Our theme for this exhibition is Sand Sea and Sky. We hope to reflect this in the blanket we will make.

    We now have our soft fleece ready to dye before we spin it.
 We do a sample piece to confirm the colours we have chosen.

Happy with those choices and pleased they reflect "Sand Sea and Sky" we dye our fleece.
 Micro waving sets the colour.

 Judi and Jill rinse the excess dye and we are pleased with the results!

They all hang out to dry. We anticipate the next stage of  spinning
 our fleece.
