I may have fallen down a dyeing rabbit hole. I pulled out two ounces of Romney and broke it out into a few bumps to try dyeing fiber.
So the first round didn’t go as well as planned. I set up the fiber, added the dye. Blue, red, grey, and black.
So I might have used a bit too much water in the pot for the amount of fiber that I had. Why does that matter? Well, the more water in the pot the more the dye blends.
My finished lovely four colors, blended into a nice black with the occasional streak of red or blue undertones. On the plus side, I did not felt the fiber and do need some black fiber for a project. So yay, on the con, that was not what I was aiming for.
I had one bump left so I decided to try one last time. As you can see, much less water in the pot. Still a little bit too much but better than the first time around. I added turquoise, yellow, and a splash of grey. I got Turquoise, green, and some yellow.
So a dyed fiber semi-victory.
