I love to use what nature gives to me. It is a question of using what is out there and remembering at the right time of the year. The gorse is in full bloom in Ireland at the moment. Places a golden glow with their flowers. We had some beautiful spring weather this week so I spent a morning on the edge of the Curlew mountains picking gorse flowers and enjoying the views over Lough Arrow. Fishermen out in their small boats looking for a trout or two.. For those who do not know gorse is extremely prickly and I forgot my gloves!!
This is the fibre I have dyed , mordanted with Allum to brighten the colour.
Was it worth it, financially no but I got out in the sun enjoyed the morning with the views, listening to the birds, so YES is was worth it and ended up with this lovely fibre
