One of my latest dye experiments, these were dipped in iron water before bundling, I learnt this technique from reading Fabienne's words.
I have also dyed some clothes will post some photos once I have ironed them, I am very happy with the 
results. Oh dear funny typing again.

LOOK, look, look

So exciting I have managed to upload some photos, lets hope it is a repeatable experience.
We took a short trip to Marrakesh, skeins of wool dyed with natural colours hanging up in the souk.
I discovered a new yarn while I was there, cactus silk which is made from the Aloe Vera plant, what a useful plant it is. Its has a very lustrous finish and weaves up beautifully. Apparently Morocco is one of the few countries that produces it. Seems to me it ought to be more widely produced it doesn't seem to have any drawbacks, doesn't need fertilisers or pesticides and regrows really fast.
