Lauma organized silk organza for us to make scarves using wool roving to felt into it. It was a labour intensive work involving lots of water, lots of rolling in bubble wrap, and having our arms shaken out of their sockets using a sander to pound. Many hours of work per scarf and many hours of work for Lauma who kindly saw that we did it right and came out with great success as shown below.
On the side, I prepared an indigo dye bath using ProChem's PRO Indigo mixed with lye and thiox and it grew to a lovely colour - an iridescent purple crust on top and a lovely lime-green below.

Of course, the cocktail hour is an important part of the day, which includes the above work, walks and swims.
