Day 29: Rust-Dyed Roving

Today I dyed some wool/silk blend roving with a rusty old railroad spike. I won’t know how it turns out until tomorrow!

    Hi! This was fiber that I dyed before spinning it into yarn. “Roving” is the name of one type of fiber preparation; it looks like a thick snake of not-yet-spun fiber. Another example of how you can buy fiber is as a “batt” which is a big square-ish or rectangular sheet of not-yet-spun fiber.
