More Wool Dyeing
I broke down and bought a special pot because I really wanted to see how procion dyes take the wool. Terri was kind enough to send me some of her old dyes that were a few years old and these are perfect for this since they become less potent for cotton dyeing purposes. But, the wool does require a lot of dye to get vibrant colors. The orange was from Kool Aid. You can see that the yarn takes the dye a lot more stronger than the roving. I dyed fuchia and turquoise. And, I think I could have used even more turquoise to get a more vibrant color. Terri, some of this wool will be on it's way to you since you so kindly contributed to my learning process!
Also, I tried dying silk batting. The silk batting is what is in the front (blue). I had gotten some samples a year ago and thought some day I would find a use for it. I'm wondering what silk batting would look like as silk paper...maybe that's the next step?
