Here are the results from the overdyeing. It’s kind of like opening presents, when I get to unwrap and rinse off yarn that’s been resting overnight!
For some reason, this skein was very hard to photograph showing the variegation and true colors. Untwisting it a bit and putting it in natural light helped some. I’m calling it Strawberry Smoothie, and there is only this skein.
These photographed truer to life. I cudgeled my brain trying to think what this reminded me of, and finally remembered:
Presenting . . Indian Chili Pickle!
There are three skeins of Indian Chili Pickle. By the way, this is not the chili pickle I usually get, but after going to three stores, I took what I could find. Patak’s Chile Pickle is more finely chopped and has a yellow to green ratio that is closer to the yarn.
These are all 400 yard skeins of the Leafy Sheep blend, 40%wool, 40% bamboo, 20% nylon, fingering weight, just right for socks. Because these are dyed twice they are $20 each, plus postage. Contact me via the comments if they tickle your fancy!
