Well friends, I’ve been experimenting that’s never good, I usually buy white wool so I can dye it whatever color I wish, now the icelandic wool was sitting around waiting for me, so I finally took matters into my own hands and started experimenting.
My first experiment was with kool-aid….now I had I taken the time to research more, I would have known which kool-aid colors to purchase…you see, my kids don’t drink kool-aid or any juice really (that’s just how we roll). So I assumed that the green package would be green and the blue package would be blue. No instead I had red, yellow, & orange for colors.
The next day I tried again, this time with Wilton food dye
I let the wool dry out in my bathroom for a few days, not knowing how long it would take to dry. It took a little longer then excepted but we had cold weather which caused out forced hot water heat to not work, and then our pipes froze and burst (right next to the wool woo hoo). So after all that jazz, it was finally dry enough for me to test out
Here is something else I just finished spinning
Now time to card up the wool I just dyed!
Have a great day folks!!
