MARBLEIZED WOOL above was done with four -1/2 yard pieces of WOOL
3.Sea BLUE and
ROLLED UP TWISTED together -tied-and put in the pot . . . with 2 tbls of detergent etc. . .I presume,perhaps wrongly, that everyone knows what MARBLEIZING WOOL is . . . although I bought a DYE Book with formulas for marbleizing whites and it was a completely other thing!So you never know!
Here, below it , is a sample of a 3 pin dyed QUICK SHIBORI -which came out nicely . . . .it seemed dark but when cut up it went a few values lighter and was perfect for my friends project-so although the wool LOOKS BEAUTIFUL in a solid piece of yardage . . . REMEMBER - to think what it will look like cut up and hooked in your rug!!I always make little folded loops with the wool to get an idea . . the MARBLEIZED WOOL ABOVE is so beautiful "as is" I just may never cut it up!
I am off to our Montreal HOOK-IN this morning . . . will report tomorrow.
