Now that it is getting colder here in Cuenca, I've pulled out my leftover wool from last year. The wool I bought was already dyed and there were three colors that were too bright for my tastes so I decided to overdye them. I love the results and I learned a lot. The biggest surprise was when I overdyed the bright lime green with Golden Poppy it turned to a nice ochre color. The bright red dyed with Peacock Blue became a more interesting rich burgundy and the international orange wool became more rich and beautiful with the Golden Poppy dye.
The warp was all string and I dyed it light gray with the True Black dye.
Here is the thread on the line after dyeing:
and here is the fabric I wove from all the threads:
This is one of the largest pieces of cloth I have made - 19" x 240". It was the full width of the loom (23 1/2 inches) but it shrank to 19" wide after wet finishing at the commercial laundry. I think I will make a short poncho and some Town Bags from this fabric....we will see....
