BEAUTIFUL AS WELL and fun to spin.
|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 or WOOL
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.

$18.50 per pound
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

|There are several ways to spin up your specially dyed rovings. Please note that the patterns on the roving are generally
unlikely to turn out that way on the yarn itself as is shown in the photo below left. When knitted or woven the pattern of
the specially dyed will change yet again. Fun to spin and use...

PLEASE READ THE INFORMATION
|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.
