The Dye Pots Are On!

This morning I set nearly 3kg of fibre to soak to open up the follicles in preparation for dyeing. The bulk of it is Merino top, but I also put up 225g of Milk Protein fibre, a bit of some lovely grey alpaca top, and 225g of nylon icicle/firestar for some experimenting. I think I will also do up some cheesecloth bags with silk nupps, wool nupps, and maybe some regular silk cocoons and Indonesian silk cocoons.

It's going to be a fun week! I hope it doesn't get too hot, otherwise it will be a little miserable in the dye kitchen...
