Dyeing - Part II

The blue-faced Leicester is a lovely wool with a good twist. Yesterday at the dyeing workshop, I picked the analogous colours of yellow, orange and kelly green for this yarn. The kelly green was more of a lime green and after painting my skein looked somewhat like a flag of some African nation.

Once rewound into a skein the kelly green was more of a chartreuse or lime green.

The seacell yarn was dyed with Sky Blue, Violet and Spruce.

There's enough yarn to make a small shawl or sizeable scarf.
