Art Yarn and Dyeing Wool

I am finally figuring out that you seem to have to do things backwards on blogger to put up pictures in the order you really want them! We will see when I am done if I finally got this right! These are pics of my 2nd art yarn I have done and I am starting to get a million ideas for them. I even broke down and ordered a copy of Spinning Designer Yarns since, a year after I started spinning, I am still kind of winging it!
Here is a close-up of the yarn. It is a Corridale wool/ pink silk blend spun onto rayon thread and then top plied with silk thread and I am very happy to say that it sold in just 3 days of listing it on etsy!



Even though I want to use commercial dyes for dyeing, I could not wait any longer to try hand painting wool. This was my first batch of hand painted wool and I am really happy with how vibrant the colors came out! I am so hooked on this now!
I am happy with the way that this one turned out. It reminds me of the mountains and sky at sunset in the desert.
This one I dyed with 3 different shades of Kool-aid and I am kind of torn between whether or not it looks like a vintage rose shade or watermelon!

Monica, the art yarn is wonderful...I can see this held along with a chunky spun yarn to create an artsy hat or scarf!

The dye job is fabulous...you are doing a great job with combining colors..they really compliment one another.

Hugs, Steph
