So I was on Instagram and I saw this cool way to dye roving. I do not remember who it was but it was AWESOME. You see prior to this I would dye each fiber separately and it would kind of take a long time. This way is sooo much faster!
its Awesome!! I cook all the colors in separate mason jars. Since I only dye enough for me to spin this makes it sooo easy! I dyed about 5 oz of merino, 1 oz of silk, and then blended it with maybe an ounce of natural grey alpaca to get this:
My one complaint is that I think I added too much grey but it is soft and pastel! I core spun it to make this:
I got about 75 yards total. Now I just need to make something with it!! I am thinking a cowl since I am not sure I have enough for a scarf. What do you think!
First up is the new color Party Pegasus, shown alongside Beach Party.
Party Pegasus is a pink base with loads neon speckles. I just love how it turned out. Next in the update is Cliffside Rose, a new purple Hecate and Pier.
Unfortunately I had to purchase more of the Wickies (BFL/Nylon) base to do this update, and since my last purchase the price of the undyed yarn has increased, so sadly these and future Wickies skeins will be priced to reflect that change.
I am planning another Wickies update in two weeks. Hopefully I can update every 2 weeks or so. If there is a color you want to see let me know! I am happy to be back dying and look forward to all the projects!
