A fundamentally amoral use of faux fur.

I'm with you!  I wish I had made more of my blue/green/purple yarn.  My friend just made this amazing shrug that's a Noro pattern - she of course spent a fortune on the yarn and I was thinking I could make the same one out of this.  I'd have to make my stripes a lot longer though. I wrapped the skien around the back of a chair so the striping pattern is pretty short.

Hey Alice,

Thanks for the great tutorial.  After I saw your gorgeous yarn I knew that I must try this.

This is what I came up with.

This is Wildfoote Luxury Sock Yarn (color vanilla) dyed with Paas easter egg dye.

This is also Wildfoote Luxury Sock Yarn (color vanilla) dyed with Paas easter egg dye.

This is white Cascade 220 dyed with Paas easter egg dyes.

I really enjoyed dying these yarns.  It turns out that the egg dye kits that I bought only had the primary colors in them, so I had to do some mixing, but I'm really pleased with the way that they turned out.

Oh my gosh those are gorgeous!  They looks so pretty wound up into cakes!  I see some socks in your future Wink  What do you think you make from the Cascade?

How's Vegas treating you lately?  Grin

Here's a question - I'm tempted to try yarn dying but how do you know if the dye will not wash out when you put the item in the wash?  Like, how did you know that the Paas dye would remain permanent on the yarn?  Thanx!
