This afternoon (fabulous weather - 34 deg.) I decided to pick some woad from the two plants I bought at the wool festival Le Lot et La Laine. They'd certainly come on from having only about five leaves each. I picked 12 oz! The leaves were duly processed, and as I speak, the wool is sitting in the dye bath. I've decided to leave it overnight, hoping to get the most out of the dye. Let's hope the blue of the wool will reflect the blue of the sky we had today.
