What gorgeous colors you produced in this roving! From the previous photo of the wool in the steamer I would not have dreamed that these glorious colors would be the result.

LOVE STITCHING RED said...

I absolutely love these warm vibrant colours, but, oh I am so annoyed. I got rid of one of those steamers two years ago at a car boot!!!!!! Ouch!!!!

Gorgeous colours.

Beautiful! I've never heard of those steamers before... maybe I should take up dyeing so I have a reason to purchase one! ; )

Julie said...

Wow! Who'd have thought? I'm with Sharon, what a surprise!

Pam said...

Interesting!!! Having said that, I'm voting for the "cool" option.What a fascinating process.The inter-weaving certainly shows off those colours to their best advantage.

Wow, that's really inspiring - and you have some beautiful fibre to spin now. Can't wait to see what this makes.

Textile Art Showcase said...

Wow - I think I might have to put a steamer on my Christmas list - first I need some instructions as to what you do to get those yummy colours!!!
How about it?

This is just fantastic. The colour is gorgeous. Everytime I use food dye I get mud!

Guzzisue said...

I had thought about food colouring but resorted to acid dyes to get the depth of colour.
