A special batch of acorns, one of a kind, made of wool that I've dyed using roots, plants, and bark that I've gathered from my woods. A labor of love, natural dyeing is. I love that they come from the earth and are in return gentle on her, and I love the subtlety of the colors and how they blend together so effortlessly.
I had a daydream the other day about a clothing store that carried only undyed clothing. In jars and baskets around the store were natural materials - leaves, bark, clay, roots... all for the purpose of dyeing the clothes to the customers' wishes. Maybe such places do exist, I don't know. They do in a very small degree in the homes of natural-dyers around the world to be sure, but on a large scale, I'm not sure. Would be fun to explore, wouldn't it?
This set of acorns is in my shop, and there will be other colorful additions later this week.
Have a good day, everyone.
