As I said yesterday, there’s lots more freshly-dyed wool in my apartment than would fit in my last post.  Here’s Mel with some of it:

Mel, wool blend, corriedale, white cormo, grey cormo.  Everything but the cat was dyed with red onion skins.

We didn’t just do onion-skin dyeing, though:

Wool blend, corriedale, overdyed leftovers of pine corriedale, habu A-93, light grey elann wool.

This, for the record, is what the non-white base wools look like, undyed:

Grey cormo, grey-brown corriedale.

Despite the interestingness of trying to dry all of this wool while retaining access to my bathroom, this was a lot of fun.  I have two reasons for not dyeing too much more, though–I’m running out of dyeables, and it’s not like I’ve been using up the predyed stuff.  (New plan for future purchases: natural colors of wool.)
