Hello dyeing board! Cheesy

I had 260yds of Cotswold spun, and wanted to try to make it self striping as it varies between worsted and lace weight. (not intentionally...lol) I have the idea of making arm warmers with it, as socks would get washed and shrink.
I used 2 Acid dyes from ForestFibres Heather and Rust, and red icing dye with viager for the red. came out very nicely although it didn't exhaust completely. i might give it another rinse once its knitted up just so it deosnt run all over me in the rain!

the colors came out very pretty! I really like the purple with the red. It's not a combination I would have thought of. Smiley
