Wool Adventures continued….

we are currently working with Romney Marsh primary schools to discover the properties of raw Romney Marsh wool.

Firstly, we have to say thank you for the wool donated by local farmer Chris

Secondly, local schools for allowing us to work with their classes year groups 5 & 6

this week we are trying natural dyes made from:photo-1

yes we’ve been boiling up cabbage! not just any old cabbage but Savoy cabbage only the best…..photo

also, the glittering and delicious pomegranate fruit…which smells a whole lot better than the previous batch

 

these are all going to be logged and recorded by the participating schoolchildren i.e. what we are using  and what colour do we get once the wool has been soaked in each dye.
