Dyeing is fun because sometimes, things turn out exactly how you expected, and sometimes they don't at all. Both were the case for my most recent dyeing session.
The top came out almost exactly how I wanted - A gradual orange-red-purple gradient.
The other stuff I dyed turned out very different from how I expected -- but still interesting in its own way.
The fleece took a little bit of color, but nothing near as much as I was hoping. The Romney dyed better than the Oxford, but it's still a very pale purple. Actually, the color is beautifully subtle even if it wasn't what I intended - in some lights it's clearly lilac, while other times it's silvery grey.
I'm planning to use the fleece together in a pair of socks - I love the contrast in texture between the two fibers, and I think it will be really interesting to use them together in one project. Sometimes it's hard to believe that this range of fibers all come from sheep and not completely different animals.
