Friday Fiber Arts ~ Dyeing Wool for Felting

The last week has been pretty nice here, weather-wise. Lots of warm days means I can get some wool dyeing done.

I like to dye an entire rainbow although I didn't get the whole thing done this week. I'm missing some of the blues and brown. Here's several of them hanging on the clothesline to dry.


After they're dry I split them up into small pieces and make small packs of wool tidbits for felting. Do you felt? I've felted soap before and made some needle felted Christmas ornaments, but that's it. Believe me when I say, my customers are far better at felting than I am.

Here's the warm colors divided up. I'll be making a cool colors pack as well, but I still need to get those last few colors done.

  1. Lovely rainbows! I have just ordered some white roving to try my hand at dying and am super excited. If my colours come out even half as good as yours, I will be thrilled. Thanks for sharing.
