The Birth of the Blues

In the beginning there was the fleece!  I bought this Shetland lamb fleece from a friend at our spinning circle, laid out on my greenhouse floor I had to decide what I was going to do with it.

Close up and washed it looked quite good, especially when carded. I decided to kettle dye it in shades of blue some I spun before I dyed it and hand painted the skeins
