I've been on a dyeing spree the last few weeks!

more pictures (newest ones towards the bottom of the set)

there's merino, domestic, romney and bamboo. all dyed with jacquard acid dyes. oh except one. but I didn't get a picture of it. darn! it was my first time dying bamboo so I was experimenting with different methods and different dyes. the Dylon dyes produced more vibrant colors than the jacquard, but I really like the muted effect the jacquard dyes had.

lemme know what you think!

I really enjoy the bamboo colors! I think they came out lovely. I like the others as well. The one with a touch of lavender toward the bottom is real awesome too. Honostly though I'd have any of them..great job!  Grin

I am right there with the-fabulous-nutmeg2000. I really like the first bamboo and the lavender wool. They're all fabulous though. I've said this before but when I look at your color combinations I always think of the ocean. You have a nice way of blending dyes.

re: oceanic colors - if you are open minded about astronomy, you could say it's because I'm a pisces. But really, it's just my favorite color pallette. Grin
