After spending too much money on too many things that I really didn't need or understand and just to have them sit on the shelf collecting dust I decided to go back to basics to relearn dyeing.
My mistakes turned into my good fortune and I discovered an easier method for me to understand. I knew I had to simplify it and make something that made sense for me and others like me.
This system was too good to not share, it is fun, easy and learn the color wheel as you go! All the hard work is done for you!
I can’t afford to play with yards of wool and never be able to duplicate the color unless I dye another large piece. Working with 3" x 18"pieces lets you play without the worry of breaking the bank. If you make a mistake on a 3" x 18" piece of wool it is not a big deal just over dye it. This freedom is sooo much fun!!!
I am offering my homemade swatch/color wheel/recipe cards for dyeing as an aid to beginner and experienced dyers.
In May 2021, my daughter Stacy officially joined business forces with me. She too loves wool and fibers. She has a career in healthcare and decided to scale back her full time role to more casual and help me with my business. She also has her own small wool art business called Wooly Soul Strings. She now takes care of all production of our hand made swatch cards of all the WMJ dye systems and is getting into selling fibre bundles. Most cards are printed, laminated and put together by hand by us. It can be time consuming so wetake orders and fill them as we go.
This is the therapy I need for my wool addiction. So please be patient with us!
