Just a couple rovings I've been working on these last few weeks.

The first is yellow onion dye with vinegar mordant and Faulkland wool:



Which is spinning into this:



Next, the rest of the onion dye with Goldenrod flowers added and alum mordant



And the resulting roving:



Then I punched up the color on a couple of skeins of roving by adding red & orange acid dyes:




On to some acid dyed roving:

"Cabin Fever"


"Flower Power"


"SummerFire"

The more I look at that onion-dyed roving, the more I like it.  The variation in the colors is amazing, yet so subtle.  I'll be it's  a lot of fun to spin.

nikschaf, the resulting yarn of the onion dyed roving is fabulous!!  I 2-plied it this week and it is one that will not be available for the public.

I have red onion skins in the dye pot for this week.
