Rabbit Holes and Full Moon in Aquarius.

Over the last couple of years going down rabbit holes about clothing, I needed something new for spring markets. I have done scarfs and tea towels, but it just did not fit Llano Fiber.
So, with the full moon in Aquarius and a bolt of loom woven cotton it is time to test the waters for handcrafted clothing.

Color

It has been a while since I have dyed with some color. The earthy feel from this textured organic cotton yarn from India, I decided to use some organic earth pigments for my color. I am mud dyeing (staining) with mineral oxides, the green is from Italy and the red is from France. Now the curing phase begins for about two weeks outdoors.
