Wool using Gene Shepherd's "Ordered Pancake Dye" process

  • Theresa Halverson

    love this look! Where can I get ahold of the instructions for this dye technique?

  • Rebekah Fowler

    Hi, Theresa, I just pinned another pic of Gene's Pancake wool. Too gorgeous. He has an excellent video describing the process on his Internet Rug Camp. It's $35 per year, but there are more than 60 videos, a bunch of free patterns, his blog, and you can ask him questions there. Well worth it!

  • Rebekah Fowler

    He's also got a video there describing how to hook this wool in the way it's shown in this oak leaf. Plus, the "Pickering Oak" shown here is one of the free patterns.
