I was complaining about wanting a raw fleece at my LYS, when the owner pulled out a fleece she'd had sitting around for years.  She gave it to me with the condition that I bring part of it back to her after I dyed it. All these are dyed with Wilton's.  So, here's what's done so far (I still have about 8 oz left to dye Cheesy):


Skirting the fleece


Nice clean wool!


Pretty crimp Smiley


Dye batch #2, after setting with heat


Yellow with green bits


Green with purple parts


Copper with green bits


Blue with green bits


Green with blue bits


Green with yellow bits


Pink with blue parts


Blue with green and purple bits


This I dyed with black!  Working in acidic conditions is such fun Smiley


Red with blue bits


Blue that split


Purple


Two blues, one which split (but the pink part is hidden).


Yellow with a bit of copper in it


Green with black (which produced pink spots)

I will dye half of the remaining wool with copper, 1/4 with pink, and 1/4 with black.

Thanks Cheesy  I started corespinning it today, and it is going to be a very fun yarn!  I'll post a link to the thread I make for it (especially if it goes in a Fiber Friday!).  Wink
