Yarn Dyeing, Take 2

I misread the Potions assignment SO here is a second one.

Pre-soak


Rung out


Dye soak


Steam- ready


Heat up


Cool down


After rinse


Close up


Wondering how I got the twist?  This is 77% Bamboo (plant fiber) and 23% Super Wash Merino dyed with red kool-aide.  Cool, huh?

OH, I just realized today I have been spelling Dyeing incorrectly....GAH!

I love the potions assignment! That twist is so pretty - love the color!

Thanks! I did a blue tinted skein on Saturday. I plan to buy more of this yarn from Claire. I wanted to use this skein to dye with plant dye, but it didn't work out. So, there is always more yarn!

that is SO cool! I LOVE that the bamboo fiber didn't dye but the merino did, SO COOL!

Did I say it was cool yet, because it really is cool! :)
