Slow Color

Pamala Weber has teamed up with Tinderbox Editions to produce a book vibrant with the colors of the north: walnut, goldenrod, tansy, sumac. Slow Color: A Practical Guide to Natural Dyeing in the North has come from Pamala’s many years as a fiber artist and educator: it is a how-to book that gives readers the recipes they need to succeed in growing a dye garden, finding plants to use in dye recipes, a guide to a calendar year’s worth of dye projects, and even a few patterns to make beautiful objects using your hand-dyed fiber.

I’ve been busy skirting this year’s wool clip. Bella, one of my favorite natural colored Shetland ewes. I’m really fond of her variegated fleece for the depth and tactile quality! She’s expecting late April.
