Colour Love

This is what I've been playing with lately, Ciba acid wash dyes. I had been planning on getting around to this for years. How time flies! So, my first samples were shockingly bright,

   one of them being this painful international orange. (actually gold yellow)

            After I spun it up, I over-dyed it with fuchsia and a little black. I had to spin it up first, 
so I  wouldn't felt it beyond repair. There, that toned it down alright. 

I also tried some little sample over dyes with turquoise and cobalt I think, and got these results.

In the end the orange won out. Now I just have see what yardage and wraps / inch I have and knit something up! What a fun trip, to go from white fluff to this!

Thanks for visiting! and Happy spinning!
