Sample dyeing

Yesterday, I went to an aizome studio to do some test dyeing of different yarns.

I used:

  • Alpasoft (80% wool, 20% alpaca) from Puppy
  • Cotton Wool Puff (50% wool, 50% cotton) from RichMore
  • Spectre Modem (100% wool) from RichMore

The results are very interesting. I increased the number of times for each yarn from 1-time to 11-times.

The mix of cotton and wool turned out to be a mix of light and darker blue, as cotton and wool absorb the indigo differently. Wool is very hard to get darker using aizome, so I need to try keeping the yarn longer in the dye.
