Lichen Yarn

Earlier this past month while visiting my grandmother she gave me a nice gift of a bag of lichen from eastern Washington and this book The Craft of the Dyer So this past week I had fun processing the lichen and dying yarn.

It is definitely much more of a process than normal powder dyes but so worth it. I can't wait to process my hydrangia flowers, blackberry plants and my cherry tree to see what I get.

Oh and the yarn is at the shop ;). My grandmother of course gets some and I put up what is left.
