Toggle Commented 6 hours ago on Indigo vat refreshing at nemo ignorat
oh the shame. Yes, I mistreat my poor combs quite abit. I bend them back regularily but they are not as strong as the tines from larger combs so it keeps on happening. Shame on me. ;)
Thank you. I'm now slowly working through the whole fleece. It will take some time, since combing with the small combs is slow work but I'm in no hurry.
thank you. Karakul is a great fiber, you will have fun with it.
All over Germany (and in some other countries as well) there are so called Nutztier-Archen (livestock arcs; farms with endangered farming animals, old livestock races that are deemed non-profitable for industrialised farmingand are in danger of dying out which would be catastrophic for biodiversity). From one of them I got... Continue reading

With the new dog in the house, walking is much easier :o) But the thinking part is still hard

Yesterday, the revitalised indigo vat had its big day, first time this spring. A friend visited and needed some bed sheets dyed as table cloths for her market stands. While we waited for the large cloths to oxidise, took the opportunity and dyed some of my prepared fabrics. Unfortunately it... Continue reading

Hello back. It's a slow process but I'm moving out of that hole

Since it is getting warm now, I began refreshing my outdoor indigo vat. It's a 230 L vat, so it would be quite a hassle to replace it completely. Which means, each spring I remove the mud and particles from the bottom. Usually I use a pond net but the... Continue reading

In the midst of inner turmoil and outer chaos, I needed to get creative. I made some lanterns from champagne coupes, I found in my mother's cupboard. I have no idea why my parents ever needed some of these but here they were and I love lanterns with tea light... Continue reading

And a lot happened. For the past year I was mostly a carer. For my mum and since October for my dog as well. And over the past months, both deteriorated more and more. Until last wednesday, I had to put my dog to sleep. Around 2, I cam home... Continue reading

I am really looking forward to rebuilding the garden. Seeing some beings grow and strive will be a nice change.

Yesterday two students visited me for a short dye day in inidgo. They wanted a peek into katazome dyeing and so I showed them how to prepare the paste, apply it through stencils and dye. It all takes some while and we had only a few hours so we concentrated... Continue reading

I am sorry to inform you that I will have to cancel my online class on dyeing and printing cotton and linen with natural dyes. My mother just turned 90 this month and since her last stay in hopital, she is now strictly confined to her bed. Although I have... Continue reading

When the end of winter comes, I wash all my woolies, look for holes, wear and tear and try to mend it. Most of my darning happens in between and concerns socks. But then there are the various holes in sweaters. I usually use similar coloured yarn and just weave.... Continue reading

Thanks to my new studio I was able to open the indigo season quite early this year. Nothing's nicer than building your vat while the cold rain is playing its steady rhythm on the roof and you are inside, relatively warm and very dry. And there is even warm water... Continue reading

Very nice and I hope warm too :o) I think the "wrong" row adds interest. I like those "mistakes"
