Delicious peachy dreams 😍 the skins and avocado dye bath pics are post dye and still there remains further colour potential! 🤗
should i try it with some iron water or copper water?? 🤔 or dye some @whitegumwool silk/merino? and hope for the best?
When i say our csa boxes have been popular, i mean it! the blue box in fingering weight especially has been the quickest to get snapped up! this month we paired locally-made tea from @prairiemoonherbs and honey sticks from mallett farms in salix, ia. mmm mmm mmm!! what kinds of other trinkets would you love to see in future boxes?
there are still a few subscription slots open, so if you'd like to get started in august, now's the time to do it (link in bio!).
When people guess the best part about running my natural dyeing business, they often think it must be squishing all that wool or even creating beautiful colors. but i have to say, while all that is amazing, my very favorite thing about my job is meeting my farmers! transparency is the most important thing to me, and am so thankful to have gone to lonsdale, minnesota this past weekend to meet my local shepherdess, stacy dresow. her family was so welcoming, made us a delicious meal, and gave us a tour of the whole farm (and the many many animals!!!). she is someone who strives to take the best care of her flock and is a true steward of the land. you'll see photos of us here with the turkish sheepdog, the lambs, including a shot of dirty gertie (her wool is in our skeins!!), and foraging for dyestuffs in the pasture. i wanted to share this inside look, so you know just how much i love what i do. truly.
On the outside, you might think i’m 16 with braces or maybe just a bit weird (i know the alien stuff is strange, you guys, but i can't help it), but just below the surface you might be surprised to discover i’m a huge empath! it’s true...and you wanna know a secret? it makes me a better #girlboss because i deeply understand the impact of my natural processes, and what those mean for both the environment and for my customers that i adore! i’d love discover something new about you, so let me know in the comments below!
Preach! i’m a hilarious hot mess! for instance, last night i finally willed myself to go to the gym (something i never ever do - i hate working out). and on my walk to the gym, i fell and seriously sprained my ankle...like black and blue, super swollen, can’t put weight on it sprained! so there goes the gym initiative...
also in the spirit of embracing my mess-self, i’m going live on friday at 4pm cst with an “ask me anything” forum. want to know about natural dyes? my processes? how many pets i have? send me a dm and i’ll answer your question live! 😘😘
