Sky wool for rug hooking

This 1/8 yard of hand dyed dipped wool.  I triple dip this wool and cook it extra long to preserve this precious blue color for as long as possible.  Cut this wool horizontally and hook it into zones as described in ‘Pine Trees, Grass and Sky.”

Sky wool is now provided by Becauseofewe.com
Some examples of this sky hooked:

The sky above has faded. As a result, I now dye the wool darker using the same formula. During the dyeing process, I cook blues extra long to help prevent fading, but unfortunately, blue is still the first color to fade.
