beauty of handdyed fibers by Kate!

Kate has been busy dyeing spinning fibers (BFL,
merino/tussah, domestic  wool) and you can get an idea here just how gorgeous they are.... but wait!  We delivered them to Northwest Wools
where they can be seen in person, fondled and purchased!  We have decided to keep the Woolgatherings name going and the label will indicate which of us did the handdyeing... and it will be mostly Kate, and i'll still have the option of keeping my fingers in the dye and fibers and yarn when my muse dictates.  and just in case there is any doubt.... yes, this is a shameless commercial plug!  



seriously, Kate really has an artistic eye for color... and i'm not just saying that because she's my daughter-in-law!

I'll have to get there right away!! I'm working on some socks from your fiber that I spun up. I'll send a pic as soon as I'm done!

I bought some of your Superwash BFL at Northwest Wools while I was there! I'm so happy that you will still be dyeing and that you got your daughter-in-law involved too! Now is there any chance that you will come down for Black Sheep?
