Dyeing with fresh cochineal in the Tx Hill Country

Just to remind folks we do have a natural dye group here on Weavo I thought I'd post a photo of the 100 grams of wool/alpaca I dyed with only 7 grams of fresh cochineal.  My blog has some more details on it on how I did it.  Not sure what weaving this will show up in but it is in the stack!  Happy New Year!

I'm so jealous.  You can pick cochineal right in the back yard!  Here in the frozen north, we have to buy it, and it isn't cheap.
