I decided to do some wool dyeing....I wanted it complex without a kettle dyed or a gradient this time for this 8 oz of Dorset roving.
I sprinkled dyes on the wet roving and just had fun.
Dyeing is only partly an exact science because this is what it looked like before I heated it in the oven for an hour.
And this is what it looked like after it was rinsed and spun out on the spin cycle in my washer.
There is quite a difference in color at each step of the way!
Likewise this roving labeled only as medium wool.
I added blues, teal and lime green dyes.
I have a very varied coloration that I hope doesn't wash out when spun!
I have to hit the spinning trail now to see what I have created!
There is something very freeing about just playing and seeing what happens!
