Making a List, Checking it Twice

Yesterday my dad and I went to multiple stores and got all the stuff I need to begin washing the fleece and dyeing some roving I have stashed away. It cost a little more than I was anticipating, but it should last for quite awhile.

Washing and Dyeing Supplies

Washing and Dyeing Supplies


Two pots for washing and dyeing. A set of measuring cups and spoons (so I don’t get dye and grease on the regular cooking ones). Some wooden spoons for various stirring needs. Can lids to put on the pots of dye. A colander to rinse the wool in. Dawn and Simple Green for cleaning the raw fleece. (The Simple Green isn’t in the picture. It took a couple stops to find it. We finally located it at an Auto Parts store.) And finally some vinegar for the Jaquard Acid dyes. I’m all set to get started. Now all I need is time!

    Don’t forget the rubber gloves to protect your hands!

    Quite honestly, I didn’t get any. I figured I could just be extra careful. And yes, I ended up with little dye spatters on my hand.
