Cotton Wool Colours

Apologies to anyone who has already spotted this one, without a photo.  That was due to me trying to master blogging from my new ‘smartphone’.  I failed!  It was too smart for me.

Here is another shot from our recent trip up north.  These pieces of cotton wool caught my eye while we were visiting Sir Richard Arkright’s Masson Mills museum.

I had always thought that cotton was dyed after it had been spun, but here there was some that had been dyed before that stage.  If anyone can explain, please do.

These ‘samples’ were neatly arranged behind a particularly dangerous looking machine which will feature in another post soon.

Thanks to Bobbie and John for taking us to Masson Mills.  It was a great day out.
