Colouring My World
At this time of the year, I get a craving for colour. It's a great time to play in the dye pots.
Dying cotton, is becoming a bit of an obsession. This batch is better than the first but I'm not quite there yet. I've noticed that the sliver compacts more with some colours than others. The blue came out really fluffy, while the red was a little more compacted. I don't think I'm doing anything different. I'll have to pay more attention with the next batch.

I do love the saturated colours and the sliver still spins nicely on my spindles and wheel. I haven't tried it on the charkha yet.
