Last time I dyed tweed yarn I dyed this colorway after the monarch butterfly dress in one of the Hunger Game movies. It was a gorgeous colorway. I tried dyeing that again on this silk base...and the black did not...go black. It's more of a brown color. I had high hopes because this silk is soooo dreamy (but also expensive...) Unfortunately I decided to not include these as one of my regular yarn bases.

As I stated in the newsletter, I have been researching new yarn bases for my shop. One of the deciding factors for me is how the yarn base dyes. As an indie dyer, I need to be able to know how colors will look on the yarn before I paint them on the yarn. Some bases take dye better than others. These did not make the cut for me. That does NOT mean they aren't lovely and that nobody will like them. It simply means they will not be a staple in my shop. I've listed them anyway for others who may like the fiber content, the colors, the weight, etc.
