Or perhaps I should say permutated? My friend Deb told me that she was impressed with my “50 cent” word “Permutations” but that it sounded just like me. Thanks Deb! Anywho, I have been turning the dyed fibers into batts. This is one of my favorite parts. I love those nice fluffy batts when they come right off the carder. These have merino wool, silk noil, banana fiber, Tencel, flax, cashmere and angora fibers.
I added in some reds and pinks to liven up the greens a bit. I can’t wait to see how these look when they are felted.
The close up photos just didn’t turn out well. I need to work out this macro business on my camera.
The batts and results of the dyeing session look great, Ruth. As for the macro setting, it works just like any other camera setting for taking fibre photos… you have to take 50 to get one that isn’t blurry 😉
Thanks Zed. I was hoping macro would be magic!
The only things I’ve found that help is to fix the focus to the centre, and maybe try different angles.
