Spinning Up Hand Dyed Experiments

Here are the hanks of Jacob wool I dyed in the September workshop. They're Navajo plied (so, three-plied) and come from Sara's first flock in Kennebunkport. We used Indigo (the bluish hank) and Marigold (the yellowish hank) among other dyes during the day-long dyeing event. I also have some yet to do in Sumac, which turned a rusty orange.

This is a Jacob ram that resided at Overlook Farm/Heifer Project in Rutland MA. They are black/brown and white, and can sport two or more sets of horns!
