A fun article about a very small scale use of a 'Sport' Solar Oven to dye roving and yarn for spinning and knitting etc. You only have to heat the fiber to 250(degrees)F to get dye to set -- much cooler than actually cooking food, and if a solar cooker will work on a cool day in Vermont, it may be a practical solution for micro-enterprise, and home fiber use, in other parts of the world.

Additional note: For a limited time you will be able to buy her solar dyed wool online at her store Chaussures Homme J.M. Weston
