Wool Dyed in wine

Marcail and I are combining our efforts this year for the Art Farm exhibit to benefit the Yolo Arts and Ag Project and the Yolo Land Trust. The exhibit will run from October 7-November 30.

I dyed the malabrigo yarn in local wine from the Bogle Vineyard. (See the process below). Marcail invented a new stitch and made the cowl and beret above.

The beret was dyed in the second run of the wine since there was still come color tannin left after the first run was completed.

We are happy with the results. Hopefully it will bag some bucks for the affair.

Thanks for looking!
