April 9, 2006 Farm Days -- Spinning Wheel
N. Walker

The spinning wheel was a big step up from making thread with an AOL CD. The lady is feeding multicolored wool to the spinning bobbin. One of the ladies explained that un-sweetened Kool-Aid is a favorite dying material for craft people to use for wool. She said that wool soaked in Kool-Aid will absorb the dye and leave clear water. Cotton, on the other hand, will not take Kool-Aid coloration.
