Sarah came over on Sunday, armed with her box of dyestuffs (and a lot of wool).  We spent a couple of hours dyeing, with what I think are pretty nice results.  They took quite a while to cool, though–ranging from overnight to ~24h–here are pics of the first batch to cool and dry.

The color is somewhat more accurate in the first picture.  All of these started out as natural shades of wool (some greyish brown, but mostly white), and they’re dyed with a mixture of red and yellow onion skins. 

[The roving in the front is mine, as are the teensy skeins of yarn; the singles and the fleece are Sarah’s.]
