Dyeing with Snippets

Previously, Linda asked me if I'd ever dyed using snippets and it has been quite a while so thought I'd do it again to demonstrate the results.  Here you can see that I have a small piece of off-white wool and it looks like a wool pizza sprinkled with various colors of snippets.

I then rolled it up just as I'd done when I did the marbleized wool. 

To add more color to the exposed wool I tied it with various colors of wool strips which will also bleed onto the wool.  After I post this I will go do another piece of wool but this time will use a colored piece as the base and sprinkle it with various colors.  I'm sure the colored piece of wool will be much more desirable to hook as flowers but just wanted to demonstrate the difference. Right now the roll that I have pictured is soaking and will soon add the colored piece of wool in the same pot.  Check back to see the results.

    I look forward to seeing the results. Dyeing is on my list of things to do ~ a very long!
    Hugs :)

  2. Just how fun is that. I can't wait to see what this ends up looking like. I love marbling wool and this looks really interesting. Will check back indeed.

  3. Looking forward to seeing how this comes out. I have SOOO many snippets!


Thanks for taking the time to visit and I always welcome comments.
