I tried to make some rainbow yarn again. This time, I dyed some of the Super Wash roving I got at the festival yesterday.
And then as I’m lifting the long wrap up and into a casserole dish, all hell breaks loose. Dye starts oozing from both ends of the shrink wrap, it goes all over the dished draining in the sink, and I’m amazed that no one called the cops because I was throwing such a fit. I was so panicked about cleaning up before the stains set in I didn’t stop to photograph the crime scene.
Miraculously, it didn’t turn out too terrible. I nuked it for 9 minutes, wish I would have gone longer. I have a sinking suspicion this either not a merino super wash, or I needed to wash it more thoroughly, because it’s a little hard to draft now that it’s done.
I love the color process, I can’t wait to try it in my white Alpaca and Merino blend!!
