Perhaps this post should be titled something about fiber overload...but there is so much to dye and so little opportunity to do it!

These rovings are a natural grey that I overdyed to see how they would turn out. They are pretty!

The multi-colored dye jobs were done by pre-soaking the rovings in warm water & vinegar, then drip drying the rovings and squirting them with acid dyes and baking them in the oven.

The solid pink was a stove-top vat dye job. I did a pound in my dye pot (my largest single dye job in that pot to date!).

Purples and blues are cool!

This last roving is white cotswold dyed with the soak and bake method described above. I think this will be socks for me!
