Space dyeing

It was such lovely weather on Sunday that I thought I’d get a bit of dyeing done.

After soaking the roving I laid it out, applied dye in sections and then steamed it to set the dye. A good rinse later,a very good spin and they’re hanging out to dry. You can see I used a half full (of water) milk carton to weight them initially to help keep the roving smooth.
