Not fully completing the staining process and dyeing in a machine that has not been rinsed, saves us both water and dye. A single wool bobbin will be turned into a single plaid with its own unique colour pattern and markings. The merino wool plaid shows plenty of contrast and clear markings. It incorporates a range of colours.
By abstracting the 1st step in the industrial process that normally sees for an equally dyed bobbin, each plaid varies in drawing and colour.
The outside of the bobbin absorbes more colour than the inside and when weaving a different pattern appears.
One woven blanket shows one cone.
