Dyed Masham locks for the Japanese

Fresh from the dye pot, these gorgeous locks of Masham fleece are a felt makers dream. The fleece was incredibly dirty and full of brambles and burrs but I carefully washed and picked the fleece until most of the vegetation was out before I dyed the 2oz batches. At the last Mansion market some Japanese lasses told me that it is impossible to buy this kind of fleece in Japan so hopefully these will fly out the door!
Latest one is the palest mint cream green.
Masham fleece is amazing and spins fine too. These locks make great ‘hair’ for fairies!
