Now they are a skein of yarn. That grungy stuff behind it is what I started with. That's some stinky old Gulf Coast fleece.
I thought things were going along pretty well. As nasty as the fleece was, and as lumpy as the batts were, I was pleased with the skein.
Then I soaked it and noticed all the dye that was bleeding out. Arghh....wasn't I just admiring my dye job? Too soon, my friends, too soon.
After another wash, a good twack and some sunshine it dried a bit lighter in color and I do believe the bleeding stopped. Now I have to wonder what's going to happen with the other batts I dyed at the same time that I am currently spinning. This should be fun.
