These are a few yarns I've dyed in a crockpot using acid dyes:) the first one is "Rainforest", the second is "Berries and Cream", and the third one is "Macaw" thanks to a perfect suggestion from a fellow craftster! Cheesy

**I've added 2 more pics of Macaw since it's my favorite of the bunch. They show a small random crocheted strip to display what the worked up yarn will look like as well as what the skein looks like when rolled into a ball**

The first 2 were dyed on 100% superwash merino and the last ones were dyed on 100% merino (non superwash)

Enjoy!

I love all three of them.  Fantastic spinning! I would name the last one Macaw.  Its bright blue and yellow makes me think of tropical birds.

thank you!!! I've definitely been having fun with the random assortment of dyes i bought. (i foresee many more dollars being spent on various fiber colorants...as if my husband needed one more reason to worry about his office space being taken over by crafting goodness)

The first one is my favorite but the last one has so much POP! Wow! You did a great job. I can't wait to see them worked up.

I'm about to bust out the knitting needles and make a few small swatches to get a general idea of how things will look
