After a Dye Session...

A few Downton Abbey episodes, my collection of Jaquard dyes, a bunch of merino top and a dye pot - and here is the result! These will be added to my shop in the coming days.

 I really "mottled" the colors in this batch. They will spin up a bit muted, and they will be just lovely - I can't wait to try one!

 These are fun because you can just spin - nothing fancy, and do a 2-ply... quick and "brainless" and end up with plenty of color and interst in your yarn.

 I also like to mix and match - spin a singles out of two different colorways then ply together. The results can be unexpectedly great!
