All the hard work to clean a fleece pays off with mad-scientist-color-play! Can’t I just dye for a living? Hey @atomicbluefiber that bottom right blue is concocted from heavy-metal-free dye!! #nailedit #indiedyer

More degummed silk cocoons!! I like to add a handful of them to a textural yarn, pulling one apart a bit and corespinning it on.  Random chunky silk blobs. How do you like to spin them?  (at www.nessaland.etsy.com)

Acid Rain batts for a custom hat. It&#8217;s been a while since I&#8217;ve played with super bright neons, so this turned into a fun lil experiment :-)

Sorry #greenershadesdye&#8230; Been cheatin&#8217; on you pretty hard with those evil dyes #jaquard #dharma &#8230; It&#8217;s fun learning how to work a new medium and all, but it&#8217;s also really comforting to jump back into a medium I&#8217;ve used for five years. I know these dyes. How they respond to each other; how they mix. My mind isn&#8217;t in overdrive trying to remember that perfectly complicated color concoction, because let&#8217;s face it&#8230; I&#8217;ll never be the type to keep a dye journal. Nessaland is all one of a kind, baby. (Or sometimes two of a kind!) #fiberporn #fiberfiend #felting #feltingfibers #spinnersofinstagram #handdyed #handspunstagramfiber

Transitions batt - all spun up. Rust to robins egg blue. The new carder produces teeny weeny batts (1-1.5oz) would you lovelies prefer the color transition in a tiny batt or spread over three batts (3-4oz total)? In this case, there would be a mostly blue batt, a blue/orange mix, and a mostly orange. Thoughts please!  (at www.nessaland.etsy.com)
