Woolcraft & Natural Dyes

The process of creating natural dyes is magical and inspiring for students.  Collecting the ingredients for dyes and then following each separate stage of the dyeing process is an enchanting proposition and the fact that the end result is a fabulous collection of hand dyed yarn that can be used for various creative projects is even better.  Furthermore, before the dyes are even contemplated, being involved in meeting sheep, shearing, scouring, washing, carding and spinning wool shows the 'seed to table' approach.
