A weekend's dyeing
The weekend's dyeing. All in the superfine merino, and nearly two and a half kilos in all. I was particularly pleased to do it all in the same lot of water, dyeing to exhaustion, spinning it out and recycling for each dye lot, so I didn't have to keep heating it up, and of course it's quicker too. Once the vinegar/citric acid is in the dyewater it continues to work through all subsequent lots.
