I finally got to dye up some rovings using my acid dye kit from www.helloyarn.com and I think they turned out pretty good.  I cannot wait to spin them up!

This one is 2oz of merino, called American Beauty



This one is 2oz of South African Fine, called Chaos Theory



And this one is 4oz of mill ends from TSS, called Grapevine



I have used Wilton dyes and the colors were okay, but these dyes just work so much better and seem to affect the roving better as well.  I can't wait to order more colors and dye a bunch more up!!!  Thanks for looking!

I think Chaos Theory will be gorgeous once it's spun.  The variation of colors will add cool depth.
