I dyed more! I wanted to see if I could repeat this, and I'm super happy with the results. These turned out pretty! I love peacock colors! I need to see if I can repeat this colorway so I can add it to my "recipe book" of favorites.
Wilma Worsted - This has been my go-to worsted weight yarn for nearly a decade. It's one of the first yarn bases I ever dyed. It's versatile, springy, soft and durable.
Colors: peacock blue, intense purple, rusty yellow, painted on berry pink, little lime green
Yards: +\- 210
Weight/Base: Wilma, heavy worsted
Fiber: 100% superwash merino
Care instructions: Superwash wool will not felt in a washing machine (do NOT dry in a dryer). However, I still suggest hand washing, lay flat and shape to dry.
NOTE: Most tap water has a higher than desirable (for hand-dyed wool) pH level. You can neutralize this by simply adding 2 tablespoons, per gallon of water, of white vinegar to your wash water. That will neutralize the pH levels and help maintain the vibrant colors.
