Last night I dyed some of the Alpaca worsted weight (200 yards), more to test the various techniques rather than any particular artistic expression. Because this is a one-time collection of yarns from this source, I have no long-range plans for this base, but it’s still nice to know how it will behave for the next couple dozen skeins that are available.
I am impressed at how well this yarn takes up colors — well saturated where it was supposed to be, and virtually NO run-off or bleeding in the wash and rinse waters, so that’s always a good sign.
I already know which ones I would want to knit a hat with, but since I know how they were done I can just do another for myself, so you can select from all of these. 🙂
#6 and #11 were dyed from the exact same squeeze bottles of dyes, with the exact same dyes, but just using different techniques.
They are all worsted weight alpaca, at approximately 200+ yards. They will go to the Blog Reader Specials page tomorrow for $26.00
, but you may claim today any that you want for $22.00 each — just email me with your numbered selection(s). These will be ready to ship on Saturday.
Still available: 1, 6, 7, 9
Already Claimed: 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10, 11
