Coaxing color..

Last weekend I headed South to attend the
Southeastern Animal Fiber Festival
near Asheville, NC.

The road trip was inspired by the opportunity to take a class from the delightful 
master natural dyer Jackie Ottino Graf.

You can listen to a wonderful interview
with Jackie HERE

Some of her gorgeous natural dye swatches from
Swans Island Yarn Company:

Over the course of the day we mixed, brewed, and coaxed twenty different colors
from ONE natural dye: madder root.

Our results were breathtaking..

Thank you Jackie for the bond you've created around the dye pot.
You really "Make it Madder"..
