Someone with a bit of patience may have just spun the whole lot up and then overdyed it, but spinning takes a little time, and really you want to be spinning with colours you like, so I took my fibre and little ball back to the dye pot and got this:
This is the original pale green ball, overdyed with emerald, and turquoise, not a caterpillar!
Actually I overdyed the fibre and the ball twice, because it was too bile green second time round so I had to introduce some more blues, to achieve the desired effect.
Now as we at Freestylefibre are very aware you have to be very careful and patient and gentle when dyeing fibre, but unfortunately after 2 trys at overdying and cooling, the fibre hadn't faired aswell as the ball and hadn't bloomed back to its original fluffy self, so not to be defeated I put it through the drum carder, added a little sparkle with some blue angelina and spun it into this:
7oz of feltable fluffy green singles to play with!
Monday afternoon I dyed another 16oz of fibre and some more silk hankies, and this time I've actually achieved the kind of results I was hoping for, coming soon!
