A Dyeing Mistake



The dyeing of this yarn went a bit wrong.  I was hoping to get a really strong pink with a little dark blue but I must have had too much water and the dyes mixed too much and so I ended up with shades of purple.   A nice colour but not what I expected.   Next time less water and make sure the dye bath does not boil so fast.  Could be worse some colours would have come out a murky brown!

  2. Your colours!! I wanted it to be even more mad. No more of this type of yarn for a while. I have to use up all the fleeces i have taken the good locks from so the plainer type of yarn will appear for a while
