A little summary of my hunt for the right ingredients to knit some beanies while i’m here.
I started with the wool and pigments i came across in Essaouira. Homedyeing the wool worked quite well (purple beanie) however, the color faded a bit already after one day in the sun and i think the yarn is too thick and irregular.
In Marrakech, after asking more than a handful of people, i found better material. 2-Ply yarn, both natural / uncolored and colored in several nice shades. (the last 3 beanies)
Next thing is improving my knitting techniques..
