I've been into spinning, felting, and finally decided to learn a whole lot more about dying.
Well, here's my recent Aussie merino results

oooh how'd you get that 5th one, the really dark brown??!?!?!?!!   I need to re-dye something, and I was hoping to get a rich brown and got a really ugly brown instead...... I used wiltons brown food coloring gel.  I bet you used some acid dye or something right?

Ohhhh.... luscious...  I'm glad you can't see me as I'm drooling...  I would love to touch it and turn it over in my hands!  They are all just beautiful!

Thanks guys, I'm filling up my shelves with so much colorful wool!
(As though there wasn't already too much from my other fiber addictions...)

I like the second one with the shades of brown the best.

Ah, that's one of my favorites too  Smiley
It has a nice honey sheen to it in person

oooh how'd you get that 5th one, the really dark brown??!?!?!?!!

You're right, I did use a nice Aussie wool dye, and I mixed khaki, brown, black and blonde to get the colors pictured
