ORANGE COOPWORTH


Here is the Coopworth oranges that I dyed. It does have wonderful shadings in the singles and changes quite a bit in the plies. It is a fingering weight and its complement of the greens is on the wheel now. I think I will be spinning a dark brown to go with these two colors for the Faux Isle projects............more dyeing!
Speaking of which, her is a new batch off the dyeing board. How different the skeins look from the last batch even though it is the same dyes! The colors are stronger and in a different order than the last ones.......this wool seemed to absorb the dye differently which is an interesting and new factor for me to consider. Still very satisfying!
