I'm very pleased with the results of my latest dyepot. (These photos were taken as the roving hung outside to drip dry.)
By using Wilton gel food coloring - black - and removing or adding dry Falkland Top at various stages of exhaust, with different amounts of acids, I achieved three different colorways.
A "Black Raspberry" colorway with maroon and burgundy going through raspberry to lavender purples.
A "Blue Ridge" colorway which has smokey purply blues hinting at denim and steel.
And a happy "Robin's Egg Turquoise" blue (in the middle of this photo) that was the last of the color to absorb/exhaust.
I was having so much fun, I also broke brown then.
I really love the way some of the copper colors came out deeply but some went almost peach, and in the yellowy tans there's just a hint of almost green that gives this a very rich woodland feel.
I thought I was going to like the broken black better so I didn't use very much of my fleece on the brown. That was a mistake, I love the brown! But no worries, I plan to do this again. :)
