Which brings me to my very own wool joke- "How do you shock wool? Sneak up behind it and yell 'WOLF'!"
It's all good.
Next test was to see how light I can make the dye color. Everything up to now has had maximum absorption of the dye color.
To this dye bath I only added 1/64 teaspoon of sky blue dye. I got a little worried about 2 minutes into it and added another 1/64 teaspoon to make 1/32. The color is beautiful.
What I learned from this experience is that as the water heats, so does the color. It probably would have been okay left at the original amount but I do like this value and will use this measurement again on other pastel colors.
Since this is yarn my daughter will be using, I intend on overdyeing this a deeper blue tomorrow. Stay tuned.
