OK, does anyone else think this pile of wool resembles a flying dragon or is it just me? This is part of the fleece we got from Maryland. I realized that if we weren't too scientific about it, we could go ahead and dye the wool right after we got it washed and then only have to wait for it to dry once. (Technically, we should have washed it, let it dry, weighed it, then dyed it, washed it again, and dried it again.) So with a guesstimate on weight (which I think is high but I am really bad at ballparking the weight on anything - this weighed less than Ramius who weighs 11 pounds, but since the whole fleece only weighed 8 pounds, I was pretty sure that this part of the fleece would weigh less than Ramius. See? The dyeing of the wool, it is not an exact science at Casa Pink Lemon.

I did take really good notes and will weigh the fiber after it's all dry so that if at some point I want to reproduce this color, I can. We were shooting for a periwinkle and as you can see, we hit it! The color has a touch more purple in reality than it photographed, but you can get a pretty close idea of how it looks here.

Have a great weekend!

My mom pointed out that if you view the other side as the head you could see a pig. (But she saw the dragon first.) I only saw the dragon.
