Dyeing experiment


This is the result of my dyeing acrylic experiment that I told you about last week. The skeins took a long time to dry out, then I had to wash and rinse them and hang them to dry again. A lot of paint came out.

The turquoise and orange ones have a deeper colour than the one on which I tried four different separate colours.

The yarn was cheap and not soft to start with, and whilst it feels a little stiffer in places, it is knittable. I don’t think I would trust this not to run with later washing so I wouldn’t combine two skeins in one project, just in case.

Now to wind it into balls.




Edited to add photos of wound balls…turqoise 75grams, orange 105, and Neapolitan 80.
