Today is supposed to be the last warm day in a while. The forecast says mostly sunny and 73 degrees – a perfect day to solar dye some wool.
I mixed up my dye bath and set it out on the deck as usual. Because the air temperature is not too warm, I put a dark-colored blanket around the glass bowl to insulate it and warm it; and I placed aluminum foil around the back of the bowl.
Later I used some old windows I bought a couple years ago to make a little solar dying “greenhouse”. It protected the bowl from the wind and helped it heat up better.
