Daniel informed me last night that he wants me to take $2000 and start up my own business an an INDIE DYER !
I have done dying, spinning, knitting, crochet, and weaving. But dying my own fiber is by far the best thing on Earth.
There is a huge market for hand dyed fibers (especially naturally done) and handspun yarn. I can do both !
We found a great company to get pounds of finished fiber from in bulk quantities, I know where to get natural dyes, and I just need a few extras. So I am taking the time now to read up on what I really need, buy the pots that will be just for dying, get a scale for measuring, and start ordering obnoxious amounts of fiber !
I remember when I learned to spin a few years ago and 4 oz of fiber felt like a lot. Now I am looking into buying 20 pounds of alpaca top. It is just amazing to me. I can't wait to get started. I have three books in my sac right now that I have to read through and a pad for jotting down notes on everything.
