Dyeing has started

The dyeing is coming along, although not much of a dent has been made in the stock solutions. Will  do more soon. So far it has been wool, silk and a combination of wool and llama. I have more silk caps and roving planned as well as a lot of the natural colored  Coopworth and Shetland. They make such lovely heather colors.

 Hand spun 3 ply BFL blended with nylon sock yarn. I dyed in ball form. Half in purple and then turned the balls over and dyed in forest green. The green shows mostly gray.
                                                      Hand spun in various combinations.
                                Silk cap, silk, silk, baby alpaca and silk sampling. Jacob in the back.
                                         Silk roving in shades of pink and rose before rinsing.
