After attempting to naturally dye the wool roving I purchased...and failing...I finally figured out I could simply use food coloring and it works lovely! I mean look at these scrumptious colors. Blue, green, red, yellow and yummy orange.
This is only 5 ounces that you see here. I still have plenty more. I can't decide what other colors to make. maybe lighter versions to have pastels? I don't know but I am very pleased with the results so far. I don't regret one bit purchasing it undyed. It was so much cheaper and the dyeing process really isn't hard at all. I purchased a full pound...it's just the most lovely thing to hold in your hands, so soft and cuddly. It's almost a shame to needle it. ;-)
Best price I've found for undyed wool roving: Deer Run Sheep Farm
