New Yarn!

I'm trying to build up my inventory a bit before the art show on the 23rd. So I bought a bunch more blank yarn, and yesterday I started dying it! I've been using Jacquard acid dyes lately and used it for this batch too. I'm getting great color results! They have lots of colors available, but I just bought the red, yellow, and blue, so the different colors is all done by mixing.

This blue and purple yarn is a heavy worsted weight, that I got from yarn2spin on etsy. I had the chance to meet her in person at Sheep Shearing Day.

These are both 100% wool, worsted weight and the same length. For the top skein I rewound it to be much longer to get the very long color repeats.

I love the way your colors are blended. So subtle and lovely! One day I will learn to knit.
