handling than can normal fiber and still comes
out beautiful and ready to spin.

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.

All colors are derived from Acid dye stock colors
or Rit Dyes on hand.
|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 loosely hand crocheted roving in
a fairly strong hot vinegar bath before droppng 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.

It is a Good White fiber ready to spin or
to dye into glorious glowing colors.
Very easy to handle, no felting in the
dyepots or in the wash.
Mixed breeds of sheep in the blend gives
the white Superwash a more light cream
tone to the white color. The #1 Wool Top is
a purer white most of the time.

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

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........Colors will vary from the
photo on the left...all depends on what I am dyeing
at the time.......

|There is some variation
in the color of the rovings due to the tightness of the bumps
when dyeing. This fiber is mostly dyed for blending colors to
make Browns Yarns. When you buy, be certain that you buy
enough for your project. The next time you buy roving it is
possible that it will not match exactly.
We added S.V.Lavender...we have several bumps of this roving. It
varies from a light grayed Lav. to a more even lavender.
Occasionally it is even throughout.
