Okay, so it's not spun yet - but I really wanted to share!

My sister and I set up our own little dyeing studio this weekend and tested out our 18 colors (12 basic Lanaset colors and 6 we blended ourselves) on smallish pieces of roving.  Here are our results!



Turns out dyeing as addictive as spinning.  Uh oh.   Grin

Uh oh for me too. I want to start dyeing but I'm afraid I won't be able to stop!
Anyway it looks great! Are you going to be selling these lovely rovings?

I want them all!! You did an awesome job. I'm sure if I had room in my house to set up a little dyeing studio I would enjoy it much more.

My sis and I have been toying with the idea of starting a shop on Etsy, but we want to get a lot of practice in before we start selling anything we dye  Smiley  I'll keep ya posted!

Beautiful! I agree with peachymanaangel, dyeing can be quite addictive. So be warned!
