Shibori using pebbles on our new Superwash Merino Fabric

To demonstrate various ways to use our new fabric, I tested one of my favourite techniques for use on fabric - Shibori dyeing.

The first attempt was tying little pebbles into the fabric before I dyed them:

 Wrap cotton around the pebbles to secure them in the fabric.

 I popped this into navy acid dye in my bain Marie, and left it for about 20 minutes, note the cotton doesn't take the dye, which is why I used cotton thread instead of wool. Once the fabric is dry, unwrap the pebbles from the fabric.
