Last week we dyed wool with coreopsis flowers, which was practically a spiritual experience for me. This week I made my first skein and learned all about sheep breeds. She's 50 years my senior but there are moments of sparkling connection between us as we share our love of colour and wool and craft. Next week we're going to learn how to deal with a raw fleece. Every week it's a completely amazing craft and friendship experience.
