Two multnomah-type shawls
The small one:
This is the smaller version using yarn I spun from one of my sheep's fleece and dyed it, mainly with food colors.
This is the bigger version. I dyed some roving I got in the UK and edged it with some undyed fleece of my own. It's nice and warm but I still have to remove bits of kempy fiber .
I've dyed some more roving I got there in multi-color - not sure how I'll spin it yet :
Thinking of a thick woolen 'though how that will mesh with all the colors I don't yet know.
