Yes, the colours really are this intense in real life. I love the way the lustrous longwools (Teeswater, Wensleydale etc) just glow when richly dyed.
There's a small Romney lamb fleece all dyed up and drying on the racks at the moment. If I get organised tonight or tomorrow morning before going off to race at Runcorn I shall stuff more fleece in the oven. Then I can get started on the oatmeal BFL tops.
And there's quite a bit to pack and label up. Leia killed a hank of white BFL dyed in Volcano earlier this week, so I shall have to spin what I can salvage myself. Horrible cat. Must remember to keep all the fibre wrapped up when the new kitten arrives....
