I've collected a lot of eucalyptus bark in the nearest park and continued my experiments with natural dyes. I've run a lot of small tests before with scraps of fabric and got a lot of different and beautiful colors; from pale yellow to dark and rusty rich shades depending on eucalyptus type and fabric. So this wrap is my first real work with eucalyptus. I crocheted it first using baby mohair and felted after with 18 micron carded Merino.
