The hemp I've been spinning lately has such a short staple length, 1", that I card rolags where as the flax is 3" at the longest and I'm spinning from the sliver.
I spun some practice skeins of only a few grams last night and today just for the fun of it I dyed them. One a darkened fuchsia, another an orangey colour and one a mixed green.
The dye is finished and will just sit in the dye bath for a couple of days before I rinse them.
I think I better get the little roast chicken in the oven or we won't have a dinner today.
