Color, Color, Color

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.
