This time, I used less dye and soaked it for about 45 minutes to an hour in 300 ml of vinegar and half a bucket of water (approximately 6 litres). I’m planning to spin and then ply this up, hence the very subtle difference in colour intensity. Yes, I’m still experimenting with the amount of dye and the level of colour intensity.

Still, I like the pastel soft hues. I’m hoping to get more fibre soon (but mostly wools) to concentrate on these little dyeing experiments. With any luck, I think I’ll end up with more fibre than yarn for the special project! 🙂

Y’know, sometimes I wonder why I get assignments like this – auto insurance online quote. I don’t even own a car!!!!
