Border Leicester Fleece Hand Dyed Annatto w Alum

Today is the first day of the Tour de Fleece! Until July 23, a group of passionate spinners have committed to S P I N - right along with the cyclers. The yellow jersey is, of course, the coveted icon of le Tour. With that in mind, I dyed a bit of fleece and roving with natural yellow dyes. This first post features what I will be spinning first, Border Leicester, mordanted with alum, dyed wiith annatto.
