Those are gorgeous Erin. I probably don't even have to ask, but are they natural dyes (indigo?) or synthetic (I'm betting heavily on the former).

thanks!!!believe it or not its synthetic, using citric acid. some day i'll get into the natural dye groove! what helps this series of blues have some earthy depth is that the fleece was grey/black/brown variegated w/ a bit of silver and white.one of my churro/cotswolds.
