My niece had a great time space dyeing her merino / silk fiber she bought with some Christmas money she received. We used Country Classics dye which don't require any additives other than soaking the fiber in a little Synthropol before dyeing. The colors were a little tame for her (she likes zebra stripes and hot pink!) but all in all its very pretty.
I started putting a Verithane finish on her wheel to protect the wood but couldn't find the sandpaper needed, so finally got some yesterday and hope to have the wheel finished by this afternoon. Being a Kromski Minstrel it has so many little pieces that make it so fancy so it takes a while to get them all coated. She's anxious to use it so guess I better hurry up.
