A few years ago, I accidentally dyed an extra couple pounds of cormo a bright sunny yellow.* I like yellow in the garden, but not too much of a fan of it any place else, unless it's a pale version. That means the extra just kind of hung around. I have used up some of it in workshops, also blended some with white angora to tone down the color, then spun it. But I still have a bunch. Yesterday, I decided it's time for the "make lemonade" treatment, so pawed through a box of fibers that have officially been for sale but haven't really made an effort to market them. Yum! I pulled out some dyed angora that can tame vivid. Sent both through my drum carder and out came Tequila Sunrise. Now I know how yummy cormo and angora is blended together. I've played with it often. But every time I play with a new batch, I still react. Oh Ma Gawd! This stuff is feather light luscious softness! Imagine a sleeping bag wet felted with cormo angora. You could probably get it to soft felt stage then slip inside it nekkid and finish felting the inside. Yeah, it's that soft and sumptuously tactile. If that calls to you, the batt is for sale, $8 per ounce. I can card up more, up to half a pound. Click on that email me link up there on the right if you want to discuss it.
*How do you accidentally dye a couple pounds of fiber? Oh, I'm skilled in soooo many ways! I was dyeing a total of about 20 pounds of assorted fibers in assorted colors, using 3 dye pots. I separated the fibers into bags by weight and intended color. Cormo, angora and silk were all going into the yellow pot but the pots only hold up to a pound each. It was a couple days of running back and forth between undyed into the pots to dyed out to dry on the deck. The bag of cormo that didn't need to be dyed until sometime in the future slipped off it's own pile and into the pile destined for the yellow pot. Voila. A couple extra pounds dyed yellow.
