Angora Dyes

I sold out of carded dyed angora at the show this past week end. So - I am back to the dye post this week :) I use Pro Chem and Jacquard- they are acid dyes. When I first started dying angora - I could never get it dark enough. I learned to leave it in the pot over night - that seems to do the trick. Currently in the pot is pink - it looks like hot pink but will rinse out to a soft pink.
This is national blue out of the and drying on a screen.
Diane from Rainbow Mountain Alpacas is on her way down for a farm visit - a fiber play date and a cup of tea- what could be better on a cold snowy day?
