I have been dying yarn for about four years now, and I mostly dyed cotton yarns because of the ease. With cotton you can literally buy any tie-dye kit, soda ash, and have your yarns turn out amazing. With wool it’s not as easy. I have been researching and learning about it lately. Here’s a photo stream of the progress.

|Third Time: Cobalt clothes dye|
and Turquoise food coloring
|Third Time (Did them both Together Different pans)|
Deep Purple (Clothes Dye)
The next few I did over the course of a few days and I’m counting it as the final time because that’s as many times as I’ve dyed, but I did them pretty much the same way, except the pink which was done with food coloring and not clothes dye.
