I have been making good use of the long week-end, and dyed a bunch of Merino rovings. I confirmed with my supplier that these rovings are 100% SA Merino, and sourced from mulesing-free farms. All the dyeing shown below was done with food colouring and food dyes.
Here are some pinks:
100g, 23 micron - 'Pale Roses'
100g, 23 micron - ' Purple Rose' - Sold!
100g, 21 micron -'Rose petals and lilacs' - Sold!
100g, 23 micron - 'Pink Blink'
Here are some brights:
100g, 21 micron -'Scrambled sunrise'
100g, 21 micron - 'Autumn Birdbath' - Sold!
100g, 23 micron - 'Demented Rainbow' - Sold!
100g, 23 micron - 'Blaze and Blink'
These ones are going to the Johannesburg Weavers and Spinners Guild Fiber Breakaway with me in September:
100g, 23 micron - 'Radioactive Khakibos'
100g, 23 micron - 'Plumbago'
100g, 23 micron - 'Singed Cyan'
200g, 21 micron - 'Pansy' - Sold!
The next three are 100g rovings, dyed to match each other.
2 x 100g, 23 micron - 'Garden Gate'
Here is the third 100g of 'Garden Gate', still wet!
I hope to get a good grip on spinning on a wheel during the week's classes there!
