The wool I used to crochet this jacket was handspun an hand-dyed by one of the women in our weaving group. The dyeing was using a crampot technique, which resulted in the colours being stronger in some places than others. So I used the stronger colur as accents on the sleeves - it looks better in real life than in this photo.

The wool was donated as part of a raffle prize at an exhibition our group held in June at Dobell House. Mum won the raffle (which also included a beautiful handwoven wrap). But since she can no longer knit or crochet, she gave the prize to me.
