happy accident

My first attempt at crockpot dyeing didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to. I tried three colors – yellow, purple and red and my hope was that you could see each color… but due to my using my crockpot for the first time (and accidentally having the setting on low), the colors blended. With just yellow and purple, I could have ended up with muddiness, but the red kept that from happening and I ended up with a kinda of rust color with variations.

Stay tuned to see the spinning of this fiber. :D

  1. It looks nice to me. And the colors will even out once you spin it.
    With the purple and yellow, if the purple is a blue-purple, you’d get a nice shade of olive green, one of my favorites.
