My first official wool dyeing experience: This is recycled wool from a thrift store sweater, dyed with blue and green PAAS Easter egg dyes. I poured the green dye on one side of the bowl and blue on the other. The bottom ball is the original color.

These are beautiful. I can't wait until I can get a little time to start dying my own too! I've been doing lots of reading up on it!

Oh wow!
I'm in with them all...

I've tried some koolaid and Easter egg dyeing lateley, but I can't get the bright color I'm wanting. Does anyone have any ideas how to brighten a color?
