I recently had a go at dyeing some wool tops using onion skins. This was the result:



It wasn't entirely successful as I did felt it a little in places as I couldn't resist prodding the wool from time to time - I'll know better next time! This is how it looks spun:



If anyone's interested, I've written up a detailed step-by-step guide to how I did the dyeing on my blog here.

Thanks for looking! Comments / thoughts / questions welcomed! Smiley

That's a beautiful color, particularly lovely in that it's nontoxic!  I'm also very impressed by your uniform spinning

Thanks very much. I'm making the transition to a wheel at the moment so my spinning is anything but uniform!  Grin
