Washing & Dyeing Fiber

It was so pretty outside today that I took the day to wash & dye wool & mohair.I`m trying to get it ready to take to a mill to card it into roving for me.At the rate I`m going now,I will never get all this work done myself.I used Cushings mummy brown for this pumpkin shade,the packet was to dye  lb.,but I used it for 2 lbs,hence the lighter shade.
The blue & red is from Greener Shades Dye.I will use the red wool for doll hair.The blue will hopefully get mixed in with the other purples & blues I have dyed,I`m anxious to see how they will all look togther.
