Egg dyeing fun

I guess I should have worn rubber gloves! I took 2 ounces of merino roving, soaked it in some vinegar and water and then dipped it in the leftover egg dye. We used a 5 color tie die kit. Each of the colors was in a tray so I just had to squish the wool into each color. My hands looked better after a shower.

I split the roving into four strips. Now I have to find time to spin them up!

Last year we used the 9 color Paas kit. I dyed some mohair locks to use for needle felting.

A few years ago, I dyed some of my handspun merino with the leftovers from a 9 color kit. After it dried, I ran out and took this picture before a storm came.
