GLOWING SUPERWASH, BUT ARE

|Superwash is very fun to dye.It can take much rougher
handling than can normal fiber and still comes
out beautiful and ready to spin.
|CAROL'S SPECIALLY DYED SUPERWASH
We are no longer doing custom dyeing. We will continue doing the
Specially Dyed Fibers as time permits.
The dyed fiber spins into glorious yarns, strictly one of a kind. We now
offer a smaller amount for folks wanting to spin for a pair of socks.

|Superwash fiber takes many dyes beautifully. I
normally use Jacquard Acid Dyes and they work
fine for me. We are trying the Dharma Dyes, but I
like the Jacquard dyes better. I have also used RIT
and the fiber took all the dye leaving a nearly clear
water. I often soak my roving in a fairly strong hot
vinegar bath before dropping the fiber into the
dyepot, this gives a variegated dye job. I would
also use this method for wetting the fiber before
painting it with the dye. I also just drop the dry
roving into the pots for a wider variation of color.

We have purchased several hundred pounds of this wonderful
spinning and dyeing fiber. Bear in mind that this great fiber may
not be a completely solid color. It is a base color at the mill that
they often use for blending, so some streaks or light to white
spots do happen occasionally in the roving dyeing process.
DOES NOT FELT!!

Amts and prices on add to cart button. Photos shown below are rovings that have been dyed in the
past. We most likely will not have any on hand like the ones shown. We use a base color and then add
more colors to float and to sprinkle on the fiber before pushing it into the dyepot. There are no color
buttons to choose from as we never know for sure what will be coming out of the dyepots each week.
Dye jobs will likely not look exactly as pictured due to the Dyer's Handiwork. Each dyepot is totally
different, and duplications are almost impossible.

|When I am dyeing the rovings I use strong
dyes. If they show signs of not absorbing all
the dyes, I begin adding fibers to the pots to
take up the excess dyes. I call these dye
soppers. They are #1 fibers, wool and
occasionally mohair or a blend. Possibly some
SW , nylon or mohair in the mix as well.
They are good for blending, for spinning if you
like spinning from handfuls, or they are good
for felting. This is a sample of dye soppers
from a few days dyeing...you never know what
color will appear. You get a mixed bag of color
and these may vary from the photo. The fiber
now is almost all from the Grab Bag Fibers as
we are getting next to no mill end rovings.
Generally I have Dye Soppers ready for shipping.
No Color Choice, colors will be mixed. On occasion
you might have to wait a day for me to dye up more
colors and fibers........
