Shoulder sidetrack and a great source of dye basics!

3 Feb

I am taking a break from dyeing due to a shoulder injury.  Shoulder spurs are painful and greatly discourage one from heaving wet wool around in dye pots!  I should be back in operation soon.  My husband is pondering a block and tackle system for me on a small scale to give me a couple more years at the dye pot.  I’d be interested in hearing from folks if they have come up with a solution.  My first thought was a tripod game hoist but I’ve been talked out of that!

I wanted to remind folks about Maiwa’s blog.  They are a fantastic source for natural dye supplies and information if the Canadian dollar exchange is on our side.  It ebbs and flows, but they have a great blog here

They do a great job of illustrating and explaining the basics.  Enjoy!  We are lucky to have that resource.
