One Pot Dyeing
Part one consists of putting to gether a J. Franzak Jr. Country Craftsman Spinning wheel. These wheels have no metal parts and slip together one piece at a time.
In Part two we start to soak the wool in a synthrapol and citric acid bath in preparation for dyeing. We use this soak for the different wools we will dye in this film, which include mohair, sheep wool, angora rabbit and silk. Then we proceed in the blending of a strong kiton dye solution for our one pot dye method. We proceed to the dyeing, steaming, air cooling, and rinsing of the multi colored wools.
Lastly we have a short section on blending to maintain color separation of the Pot dyed wool and what to do with old leftover dyed rovings and batts to make new multi colored wool.
