Color from the Montana landscape

There is so much magic hidden within plants & our surroundings! Living in Montana there is a nearly constant call to get outside, combining that with a love of wool and yarns, natural dyeing seemed to follow as I spent my hours wondering the woods, mountains and riversides.

I love the ongoing experiment of it all, the rush of finding and collecting dyestuff, the consideration of the mineral content of different waters, The shifting and modifying of colors with different mordants and modifiers. This year, we are quite excited this year to share with you a short afternoon session at the dye pots with a few different Montana harvested dyestuffs. We will all have a chance to dye some of our precious handspun and bring home some of the color of this beautiful landscape.
