More stovetop dye-lots

Here's some alpaca, simmering in blue-raspberry flavored koolaid and a tablet of red easter egg dye.

And here's some fluffy dry alpaca. The 'white-ish' parts are actually a very pale blue.

Greetings! We are on at least one Yahoo group regarding fibersrts together!
I was very happy to see you are on a similar path as myself.
A blessed metaphysical site you have!
And your spinning and dying has been right along the lines of mine - although I now use both a support spindle and a wheel.
As a professional Astrologer - I deeply appreciate your offerings of Astrological insights. If you ever want more info in that direction ~ let me know!

Love your new blog. And the koolaid/easter egg dyed fiber . I like the fact that it is not all one color and not specific rhyme or reason to the color sequence.
Nice job.

I love blogs about spinning and fiber. I hope you don't mind but I am going to bookmark you.

Koolaid dyeing is also my favorite way to dye my wool.
