Still experimenting with the acid dyeing.  This is my first time using real dyes, and it is so much fun, plus it's great to have a variety of colors to work with.  This is what I've come up with so far.

Warriors:


Deep Blue Sea:


And 3 colorways that I haven't named yet.  Suggestions are welcome.



Edit - I think I am going to call this one Black Opal


Going with Driftwood for this one

Pretty! The third one should be called earth from space or the blue planet or  something like that. I like the wispy white cloud bits through it.
I am also quite fond of the warriors color way.

Thanks, the fiber was an alpaca/tencel blend, and the tencel didn't take the dye, leaving those white bits.  I really like the way it came out and can't wait to spin it up.

I already promised it to someone, but I'll be doing more dyeing soon  Smiley

Wow.  That brown/blue/white one is the best!  If I had any use for roving, I would pick that up so fast!

Ooh - all gorgeous Cheesy  I love the second unnamed one, but can't think of a name for it.  The last unnamed one is beautiful and reminds me of driftwood on a beach.

I did some fibre dyeing with acid dyes recently, but I can't post pictures until my swap pertner received, which hopefully should be soon!
