Shave ’em to Save ’em #3 – dyeing

003.jpg

My third project for Shave ’em to Save ’em was white roving (Cotswold I think), but it’s officially Dye Season.  This was in a ball, and the outside of the ball soaked up more dark than the inside.  I will even it out a bit with the drum carder, which will make it easier to spin anyway.  This is Greener Shades dye, a half teaspoon of yellow with a couple of smidgens of black (I couldn’t find my smidgen-sized measuring spoons, though I did later, so I don’t know the exact amount of black I used).  It ends up a nice green.
