Dyeing Day

Don't you love a box of pretty freshly dyed threads sitting on your work table?

Last week I gathered together wool, silk and cotton threads and fabrics for a dyeing marathon.
  
Here are some of the wool yarns before dyeing.

Here are the cotton threads and fabrics before dyeing.

I set up a drying rack on the back porch.

For the cotton fabrics and threads I just used Rit dye. That was a first for me.

These are balls of crewel embroidery wool ready to go.
