Hand-Dyed Wool Roving

Hand-Dyed Wool Roving, originally uploaded by confections.

I've been experimenting with Ball jar dyeing this week and here are some of the vibrant results. I used a combination of techniques and added my own twist. Fellow Etsian Blonde Chicken has a nifty video featuring Easter egg dyes. I had purchased thorough jar dyeing instructions from Castleman at Etsy as well.

It's relatively simple to do and a lot less messy than my usual handpainting techniques. You'll have fun if you give it a try!
