For the past couple of years, I have been, first a 50% owner, then a full owner, of a Clun Forest ewe named Kaala Hiraka. I got to name her, too. Currently, she is living with Sara Dunham down at Punkin’s Patch in Kentucky, and Sara has taken very good care of her. So much so that I officially have gifted Kaala to Sara. I feel this is the best thing for both Kaala and Sara as Kaala is very happy down there in Sara’s care. And, this way, Sara doesn’t have the worry of caring for someone else’s sheep.
So, if you want to keep up on the adventures of Kaala and her friends, just visit Punkin’s Patch.
I am sorry for not posting anything lately. I am in the process of closing up the Dyed in the Wool business and it has been taking all of my spare time at the moment. Once I get this past me, I will be back to the experiments and explorations and fun videos.
There are 6 experimental dyes included in this video – all using the sun tea method: Chestnut extract, Wenge, White Willow Bark, Buckthorn Bark, Leopardwood, and Guatemalen Rosewood. Those that dyed well, REALLY dyed well!!
