I attempted to dye my Coopworth with some birch bark, as described in Jenny Dean’s Wild Color book. It didn’t work. All I got was little pieces of bark stuck in my wool. It was supposed to dye a reddish color, so I added a bit of some kind of red dye that I bought, so now it’s a little red. Very disappointed.
