Lovely yellow wolf lichen dyed roving. This roving is USA raised and milled 100% Romney wool. Please note: the dye process for lichen dyes requires the wool and lichen to be in the dye pot at the same time, there is likely to be some VM in the wool as a result. Wolf lichen dye also does have a smell to it, I actually find it pleasant, this will fade over time. All lichens used in my dye work are wind fallen, and sustainably gathered by myself, or trusted friends and family.
All of my dye work is done from my home studio in the woods of NW MT. This is a hand-dyed fiber, there are no dye-lots and braids may vary slightly. Alternating skeins is recommended. Some discharge of dye in the first few washings is normal and to be expected, it can be triggered by changes in ph and mineral content of the wash and/or rinse water. I dye in my home studio using well water whose ph and mineral content varies seasonally and may be different from yours. Ships from a pet friendly, low scent, non- smoking home studio. Every effort is made to ensure color is displayed correctly in photos, however monitors may vary.
