    Episode 18.1

    (This podcast is entitled 18.1 not because You missed anything, but because our podcast platform was experiencing gremlins... Carry on!)

    ALOHA & WELCOME!
    The wise and thoughtful team behind Fern Fiber sat down with me to share about their enthusiasm for botanicals. Maria and Nikki really do know their plants! They spend time taking with us about natural dyeing, how to coax out the colour you want, and when to just accept what nature gives you. They have even created an educational tool for listeners to enjoy. So have a listen!

    Our sponsor for this week's podcast is Infinite Twist. Cate Carter-Evans has created a something special in her part of the world! Amazing fiber, incredible colour and love for the knitting community are just some of the things Infinite Twist is known for! Money saving, beautifully curated kits are another.

    Be sure to visit http://infinitetwist.com/shop/ today and thank them for making this program possible!
