:: Dyeing wool using food colouring:: A loose tutorial :: Part 2: A note on colour ::

These 4 hanks of wool are all the same colour, but differ in intensity. Each hank is 1oz of fibre, which was dyed before spinning, then spun into singles which were navajo plied into 3 ply.

Using different quantities of the same colour of dye gives 4 hanks of wool perfectly suited to be used together. A quick and fun exercise to try!

 

From Left: 30mL/oz, 20mL/oz, 10mL/oz, 5mL/oz
