Here are some English Angora wool that Betty dyed recently, enjoy the colorful photos.
|In the past, if I wish to have color yarn, I dyed the spun yarn. I'm always afraid that if I dye raw wool the wool would be a matted mess. A couple of weeks ago, I experimented, see|
and had very nice results. Instead of a matted mess, the wool is easy to pull apart. I don't have a drum carder and I don't need a drum carder, I like my art yarn.
|How do you like this neon lime green?|
|Orange on the left and hot pink on the right, pretty color.|
|It's even more colorful when the orange, hot pink and lime green are put next to each other.|
|I have pale pink and magenta in the same bag but easily taken apart. When put in some blue into magenta, I got purple.|
|These are my recent dyed English Angora wool, from left to right are purple, magenta, pink, lime green, orange, blue and hot pink...|
|... plus a new batch of lavender. |
|With so many different colored English Angora wool in my bags, I can spin with variegated single color or combine two colors or even combine many more than two colors. Here is a skein of yarn spun out of the purple and blue.|
