Colour blending when there's no time to dye
I use natural and dyed sheep's fleece for finishing all my greeting cards and art work, and many of the colours have rather bizarre names - horse, Buff Orpingtons, dachshund, pig, and the like (based on what we use them for). Well, we've run out of "Mrs Nosey" - she was a bantam we had years ago, but in the studio we all know what this colour is. No time to dye any more at the moment, so it was out with the carders to do a bit of blending. I don't normally like to use merino tops as it doesn't have very much character, but needs must. Here I'm blending a bit of horse with a mixture of oranges to get what I hope will suit our Mrs Nosey. Just the ticket!
