After a short-dip, over three parts, in a dye-bath
2 packs of KA Pink-Lemonade, a dabble of Burgundy Wilton’s Icing Gel
and half-filled stockpot with water over stove top
(this reflects closest to the actual colors of the over-dyed romper)
Half an hour later
added a dabble of Wilton’s Icing Gel in Rose for upper body only in last dip
Who needs to eat? haha. I totally stopped my mindless eating (or taking ClearTract Cranberry Alternative for an annoying infection) when I started fiber crafting! Keeps the hands and mind busy!!!
Dyeing wool and other fibers is fun and really rewarding. I would totally recommend starting with just a playful mindset instead of trying to get a certain effect. Some of my best results came from mistakes or just mixing leftover dye stocks and seeing what happened. You can start inexpensively with unsweetened Kool-Aid or Wilton’s Food Dyes and vinegar.
If you really like dyeing, try to find a coop for dharma and get some dyes that way on the cheap! Joining a support group like What A Kool Way to Dye on Ravelry is a good way to start. Enjoy making personal history with your fiber journey.
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
