Time To Dye


Driving into the Wissa Wassef center the other day I found lovely red wool hanging off the palm trees. It must be the season to be spinning and dyeing the wools for their tapestries. They do their own dyeing from herbs and plants grown on the property.

I wonder what that wool would be like to knit with? *happy sigh*

Scratchy, I suspect. Tapestries aren't for cuddling. LOL
