I’ve already bombarded you with a couple of posts on my dyeing exploits, but I’m far from done.
Beautiful purples and blues, bright sunshine yellow with splashes of orange, a multitude of browns, and a seafoamy, vintage inspired duck egg blue dotted with pale grey.
This is my favourite. Multi tonal purple with flashes blue and and even hints of green. Love.
I absolutely hated these browns when I first pulled it out of the dye pot, but I kind of love it now. It has wonderful depth.
This one is another favourite of mine. The colours are so soft and lovely, it’s definite spring colour. The hints of grey are much more apparent in this photograph. I inadvertently contaminated this skein with a few dots of red and yellow dye, but I should be able to use my notes to recreate it.
And a slightly better picture of the grey that I posted the other day. The blue and the grey are the superwash 2ply BFL that I’ve already mentioned, but the other are a lovely soft superwash wool blend.
There was also an organic merino that I dyed, but it almost ended in disaster as I forgot it wasn’t superwash and almost felted it!
Thankfully it reskeined beautifully so it wasn’t too disastrous. I must remember to be more careful with non superwash yarns in the future!
