I love this video and it's so helpful! Question I have is this I have bags of cut wool that are already cut at a size #8. Can these strips be put in a dye bath or will they be destroyed? Thanks so much!

Thank you. Very good demo. I have been told that when you tear the wool into 2.5 - 3 inch pieces (before cutting into strips) you should do it in one direction vs another. I am not sure which direction to tear the wool. Thank you.
