The wool I bought was luscious. I really am thrilled with buying swatches. Although they are small, they will be great for shading. Each swatch has 6 gradations, for subtle shading.
I needed red dot to transfer a pattern I have onto the rug warp I will be using. And I have no plans for the bundle, but I just loved the colors together. I may never hook with it, but just leave it around the house as decoration :). I bought a short bolt of cream wool to dye. Dyeing wool is easy and fun. I tend to procrastinate, due to the mess, and the gathering from the four corners of the house of all the materials. But all the colors at Rug week really inspired me to try dip dyeing, and swatching. I have it on good authority, that I may be getting dye spoons for Christmas. Ho ho ho.
