The Ile de France sweater.
|Ile de France sweater.|
The design, Ribbed Cardigan, is by Carol Feller. stolenstitches.com
Dyes: Yellow is osage orange, alum mordant. Violet is acid dyed. Green is acid dyed with some woad dyed wool added.
Other previously dyed fibres were added on the blending board too.
P.S. I have a cardigan, years old, that has never had buttons put on. I know, unforgivable.
Update: I actually sewed the buttons on and wore it to the Woodstock Fleece Festival Oct 15, 2016.
Also I thought it would would be good to see more about the fibre that made this sweater on the same post. So here are some pics of the yarn construction.
