I have NEVER even thought about dyeing this much roving before.. and to some people, it's probably not a lot.. but it is to me. I've only done one skein of yarn.. then maybe two ounces of roving before. I don't even know how much I have total honestly.. I'll have to wait til it's dry then weigh it.
Anyways.. onto the pics!
This is where most of it came from.. I ordered 1 lb of superwash/nylon and 1lb of a brown mix from the Sheep Shed
And here's what I did with it!
Kool-aid and walmart brand kool aid - superwash/nylon
more kool-aid - superwash/nylon
and more.. but the blue and green in the middle is food coloring - superwash/nylon
and yet more kool-aid - superwash/nylon
wiltons - superwash/nylon
more wiltons - superwash/nylon
kool-aid - left is hibiscus colorway wool blend from spunky eclectic.. I didn't really like it so I decided to overdye it - right is brown sheep mill ends in black tones I got on ebay, overdyed
brown sheep mill ends from sheep shed overdyed with blue and green food coloring.. the blue didn't really come out that bright.. but I really like the way it came out.
I had a lot of fun trying this today.. but I am beat after all that dyeing and cleaning up!
