This is a photo of the roving I sent to mayerlove:

Commercially dyed wool on the top, hand-dyed wool/angora mix in the middle, and hand-dyed merino on the bottom

Am I the only one who thinks that looks edible?  Yuuuuuuummy.  What dyes did you use??

Ha, I'm glad you like them.  I used jaquard acid dyes...the merino was white to begin with, but the angora/wool blend started off as more of a light fawn color.

I want to eat them- the green reminds me of minty ice cream! And the purple is like grape lollipops.

I just love that angora mix! Lovely colour - and I'm glad to see fawn can be dyed so well as I got some in my collection...
