The intention was to put at least three lots of fibres through this dyebath with the result that each successive batch would be paler as the dye became exhausted. It probably would have worked too, if I hadn’t boiled the bath dry. Instead the pink got stronger and it’s not a favourite shade with me. Oh well, time to reach for the carders I guess. Sometimes I wonder why I bother, I’m not sure that me and dyeing is a natural match.
