Dyeing Yarns At Catcatcher Corner, Part 4; Or Plum Delicious

February 21, 2013

It appears that I’m going to need to dye each skein twice to make sure that the color saturates the yarn.

The latest color choice was neon purple.  When the dye was spotted onto the wet yarn in the processing bath, it made an odd hot pinkish spot.  After the first bath, the spots remained, and some of the yarn on the underside was light blue.

Let’s try another soak in another batch of dye.
