Well here we are.....

Thanks to Nova for the Awesome Blog......

5 Ply NZ Merino Wool, Dyed with Koolaid- Pink Lemonade, Cherry and Black Cherry...Smells really Yummy!!

....3 pots of dye on the stove, With the vinegar in it.
Did the pink 1/3 first....Next time I will put more of it in, so that I don't have any of the white showing at the end.
Leave it in the pot....even though the colour had all been absorbed in the first 2 min...

Then add the second 1/3 to the cherry mix...and the last to the Black cherry.
Had to move the wool a little to coat the white patch in the middle....

Its really quick.
