I've had time to dye more this last few weeks. I'm going to Texas on October 8th and need dyed fiber to sell for Christmas so I thought it would be wise to get moving. I love it now that the days are cooler, not so much watering of the yard. Gives me more time in the house to work with the fiber! Blue Face Leicester roving 8oz's of each color handpainted then drafted and braided. Next dye day the merino roving will get some color.
The flash gives more Bling than necessary.
I love the creamy color on the right. I mixed two colors and dripped them over the damp roving that had some vinegar and a bit of soap in the soak water. Rolled it up in plastic wrap and steamed it. I like the soft colors from that technique. I'll try drip method on the merino.
Opps, edit post!
Look what I got out of the garden this morning. Indian Corn!
