Fabric of course!
This is my last dyeing hurrah for the season. I am making it worthwhile.
I spent several days wrapping fabric on poles to do arashi shibori dyeing.
I use large fat poles and short skinny poles.
I wrapped 31 poles and have several other bundles to add to the poles.
I am mixing dyes to underpaint some of the fabrics.
These are just a few of the fabrics I have underpainted. I lay them on the bags the newspaper comes in outside. The heat and the gentle breeze helps dry them. After about 24 hours I will be able to dye them in the buckets to get the texture that arashi shibori adds to the fabric.
I am anxious to get them dyed and finished so I can see the results. Each time I finish a group of fabrics it is like opening presents. You never know quite what you are going to see when you are done.
