Dyeing Day

Did some dyeing last week and here is the result. All the colors are available for purchase.
One of the colors I made is Montana Skies. Since it is
made in a two-yard batch, I used the formula over a
yard of natural and a yard of yellow. Here is a picture of the overdyed yellow, now a lovely green with subtle blue overtones. Areas of yellow peek through. I call it Water Reflections. Would make lovely water, leaves, etc. I have four quarter yard pieces of this wool that I'm selling for $8.50 each (plus s/h).

Next, I marbelized some wool. In one pot, I had some very light blue dye leftover, so I put one of my bundled wools in there. Here is one of the lighter shades, called Marble A. Piece measures 34.75" x 13.25." Cost is $8.50 plus s/h.

Next piece (Marble B) measures 25.75" x 16.5" (1/4 yard). It also sells for $8.50 plus s/h.

Marble C was originally a piece of yellow wool that melded with some purple. Would make a wonderful sunset, peach, or flower. It measures 24.5" x 15.5". Cost is $8.50 plus s/h.

Soft pink wool is the next marbleized piece (Marble D). A beautiful shade, this would make lovely fruits and flowers. The other side is more cream. It measures 25"75" x 16.5". Cost is $8.50 plus s/h.

The next marbled selection (Marble E) consists of two pieces of speckled oatmeal marbleized to softpink shades. Duller pink due to the oatmeal background. Nice primitive flower in the making. Larger piece measures 27.5" x 11.5". Smaller piece measures 29.75" x 4.75". $8.50 for both pieces plus s/h.

The following group of dark pieces is the wool I used to marbelize the lighter shades. There is some variation in this wool. They coordinate well with the marbleized lighter pieces. Here are measurements and prices. S/H additional.

1 .... 29.5" x 16" .... $6.50
2 .... 31" x 13" .... $6.50
3 .... 33.5" x 10.5" .... $5.50
4 .... 33.75" x 13.75" .... $6.50
5 .... 25.5" x 28.25" .... $6.50
