Description

This is a 2-ply yarn spun from white Merino wool top. After spun in its natural color, I dyed it by randomly shaking on powdered dye in pink, purple, lilac, lime green, and blue. Instead of low water immersion dyeing which I would normally do for speckle dyeing, I added enough water to fully submerge the yarn, so that the color blooms out more. It reminds me of brush strokes of a paint brush.

Most of the time I dye fibers and roving before spinning, but once in awhile I like to spin the yarn first before having fun playing with color.
