Yarn Dyeing

Have had great fun overdyeing some spare hanks of grey yarn spun from a Jacob fleece, I plan to make a sweater or perhaps a bodywarmer style top, dyeing over grey gives a subtle difference to the finished yarn, there was still dye in the vat so I added more colours and used up quite a few odds and ends of yarn. I think the colour variations will make a good mix for a very subtle stranded yarn pattern.

What gorgeous, soft muted colours. Hope you will show us what you make with it! Charlotte xx

Very pretty! I am planning to dye some sock yarn that I bought online. It's a hideous green, so I will try to dye it a darker green. Hope it is as lovely as yours!
