Dyeing Wool

 I dyed some wool yesterday for spinning.

I love this kind of dyeing - just pouring different colours on the wet fibre, and then steaming it in plastic wrap (I use Jacquard Acid dyes, with vinegar as the acid).

It is always exciting to see what comes out. For the fibre on the left I used a split complimentary colour scheme - with orange, green and purple. The one on the right is an analogous scheme - with reds and purples.

All dried and ready for spinning (400g total).

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
