Woohoo, I have camera batteries! And some pics I've been dyeing to show you....

Yep, dyeing. I have been playing with colour so much lately, and this is my latest effort. I space-dyed some commercial tops using fabric dyes. So simple, just some water with 1 cup of vinegar and a splodge of detergent in it, chuck in the tops and when it's wet sprinkle on some dye. No stirring!!!!!! I used red, purple and blue. Very gently simmer for 45 mins with the lid on, don't stir at all, then cool and rinse.
Spin out as much water as possible, a salad spinner is perfect for this, and hang to dry.Drool over your beautiful fibre and fantasise about what you are going to make from it!
