** yarn travels

 on my recent trip to Aude
I was lucky enough to visit Andie & Adriaan Luijk at
Andie kindly gave us a tour of her dye house 
she shared the story of their craft
with so many tips and knowledge
each stage of process
sustainable and natural 
keeping the carbon footprint as small as can be
bottles of brew
horsetail and elderberry
weld and woad
real plant matter used to make the colours
even onion skins!
the wool is beautifully fine 
in weight and quality
couldn't resist these two skeins on the left
poll dorset & blue faced leicester 4ply
thank you Andie & Adriaan for taking time for us
