It may be snowing, but....

It may be snowing outside, but I have Spring on my mind.  I have spent this morning hand dyeing a metre of natural Schulte mohair into a collection of pastel shades.  Dyeing fabric is one of my favourite pastimes.  I am too lazy to write down my recipes, so I cannot exactly repeat the colours.  I prefer to take a chance and mix dye colours together to see what happens.  This is about as dangerous as my life gets! :)  I can't wait to start turning this mohair into teddies.


  1. lovely shades! Pinks and mauves aren't necessarily colours I'd go for, but I DO love the rest. They'll make some lovely teds :)

    1. Sorry it has taken me so long to reply - I've been unwell. Yes - colours are very personal. There are certain colours I would never have in my house. I'm really enjoying my teddy making at the moment.

  2. Hee hee, I love your dangerous life!
