Chapter 5 Fabric Selection

Examples of natural and man made fabrics

Although I have quite a range of fabrics, I never seem to have quite the colour I want. Even as a child I can remember having a huge box of hair ribbons and insisting each day on a definite shade or hue to match my outfit! Colours also vary enormously depending on the matt or shiny nature of the fibres and the way they reflect the light.

I decided to spend some time experimenting with
my Procion dyes to produce some threads and fabrics of my own. The sunny Easter weather was perfect for drying!
