green show

its early morning here out west and i'm preparing to leave for the second show this summer, a green show in frisco co. here are some green pieces i'm taking. these hats are made from all natural, un-dyed wool and alpaca. this is something i've been wanting to do for sometime and am thinking about offering a new line of natural colored goods.
this second group is again naturally colored wool, but i then did a dye bath with walnuts husks. walnut is one of the few natural dyes that does not require a mordant (primer). some of the mordants are very toxic, but most think natural dyes are greener
more from the show later
