I thought this might be of interest to some of you. These are threads I posted about dying wool on a different forum.

That is so neat. I love learning about stuff like this..
Plus, the wool turned out beautiful.
Oooh, and I love the shop, they have some really neat things. I have a hand (drop) spinner at home, haven't quite gotten the hang of it yet, but it takes forever.
Wow! Look at all those machines! Its so cool to see how its actually all done.
I honestly would love to be able to get into something like that. I'm not enamored with my current job very much
I have always told my husband that some day i would like to at least own an alpaca or two and do some personal yarn making for myself on a much smaller scale
But you know, there's the whole money, land, time issue that I have to address first. hehe
Thanks for sharing!

very cool! I would love to learn to spin. I dream of one day weaving with yarn that I spun and dyed myself...
There is something about words. In expert hands, manipulated deftly, they take you prisoner. Wind themselves around your limbs like spider silk, and when you are so enthralled you cannot move, they pierce your skin, enter your blood, numb your thoughts. Inside you they work their magic. ~ The Thirteenth Tale
