Tansy and Blackwalnut harvested from my mother's farm, made potent organic dye baths producing a gorgeous color on the lovely and soft Olde English Babydoll Southdown from The Salty Ewe Farm in Kennebunkport ME.

1 ounce package.

Generally I hand wash all of my locally-acquired fleece with delicate soap and white vinegar rinse (the smell goes away upon drying!). Some of the fleece I hand pick (as in use a Picker to open up the fleece), some I leave alone as it is lovely as is (especially the Border Leicester and other lock-y breeds!). I create my own natural dye baths from plants I grow and/or harvest in the wild; and, I look to the kitchen for other sources like spices and egg dyes. Small kettle dye baths can take up to several days to achieve certain colors. A lot goes into making these bundles of joy including carefully handling the fleece so that it maintains its gorgeous look and feel throughout the process. All done in a smoke free, dog friendly environment. Labor-intensive, but so satisfying.

More ounces of this color may be available; contact me if you want to order more than one ounce. Some VM (vegetable matter) is always a factor in naturally processed fleeces. And, computer monitors do not always accurately represent the true, in-person color of objects. I use smart cameras and try to do my best with the lighting.

Shipping listed below is for First Class USA Mail Service, including Delivery Confirmation. To ship one ounce via Priority USA Mail would be $6.10, including Delivery Confirmation (I might be able to get more than one ounce off to you at that rate, but probably no more than three ounces maximum).

If you are out of the USA, contact me about shipping arrangements. I'm happy to work something out with you.
