I needed some new roving colors for batt making and here they are!  I used Dharma Trading brand acid dyes with citric acid. The fiber bases are Cheviot and CorrieX.

At the last minute I threw in some commercial yarn that I had previously dyed light greens as a base. I put them in cakes and let the dye do its thing.

I love the way the colors broke, don’t you?  Stay tuned for projects I make with these yarns.
