I managed to sneak in a really big day of dyeing when we had a rare dry and warm day a week or so ago. I dyed 60 skeins in one day. I had 4 dye pots going most of the time.
By the end of the day, I had my drying rack filled with yarn that had been dyed, rinsed, washed, rinsed, and in a vinegar bath for a final color set.
The rack had to come inside to finish drying, some was still dripping, but I was thrilled with my accomplishment.
Now it is all re-skeined and looking very pretty. All ready to go to out on the town!
This is my sock yarn. It is 95% alpaca, 5% nylon, 300 yards, $25 each. It will still felt, so will make great felted mittens as well as socks or hats or scarves. The nylon will give it more durability. The skeins in the photo are stacked 2 deep except the 2 skeins are on the far right.
This is my super soft yarn, under 20 microns, royal baby 100% alpaca, 300 yards, $25 each. You need to feel this to believe it! Great for anything you want next to your skin! Again, the skeins are 2 deep, so there is 600 yards of most colors.
And lastly, this is my lace weight yarn, 100% alpaca, 300 yard skeins, $18. Perfect for shawls or scarves.
A few skeins have already be spoken for, but the remainder will be going to Llama Magic and Fiber Friends festival on May 10 – 11 and then on to Shepherd’s Harvest on May 17 – 18. I look forward to seeing all my fiber family at these events.
