Dyeing Part II 

After last weekend dyeing at the soon-to-be Sugar Beet Coop, Maggie invited a few people over to her house to dye some yarn, and use more of the Indigo.  First I took some lovely angora blend sock yarn, and dyed it in the Indigo. I love this color, the look of blue jeans in the softest of sock yarns.

Unfortunately, the color is rubbing off on my hands, and has diluted a bit.  I need to see if I can overdye it again, and get something to set the color better.

The other yarn that I took to dye was some nondescript  Merino, imported from China, that was given to me years ago.  I never had much interest in working with it.

That is until now!  Here is one of the skeins dyed in Weld I think, again thanks to Maggie.  Look at that beautiful, rich color.

Next, my own experiments.
