Finished Result: Rinsed Hibiscus Dyed Merino


Rinsed Hibiscus Dyed Merino

It is now drying (in the shade) in the sunroom. I love the color and how it's darker in some spots, I prefer variations in color than one solid saturation, so while the yarn was soaking in the dye bath for the last two days I made sure that some was sticking up out of the dye a bit, while other parts were buried under the raw materials.

I kept the leftover dye bath and dropped some random wool into it this morning after I finished rinsing the Merino because I really liked how dark the Mission Falls 1824 Wool I used to tie this hand turned out!
