First Independent Dyeing With Haskap

From one of the recipients of our first batch of dye…

[JT from] the Manitoba Weaver’s and Spinner’s Guild kindly gave me a bottle of the dye juice.  Wonderful results!  I used 400 grams total of a combination of Shetland/Texel fleece, mohair locks and silk roving.  I continued to use the dye bath for subsequent fibres until it totally exhausted.  In [the] end I dyed roughly 1600 gams of fibre in lighter and lighter shadings.  Thank you for the opportunity to use this dye – I shall order more next summer.  – MH

…thank you, MH!
