Pretty Fiber Day: Dyed Locks II

More dyed locks
More dyed locks. the bottom two are alpaca, which interestingly enough did not want to take dye. the one on the right is supposed to be black like its romney friend on the right, and the one on the left is supposed to be eggplant purple, like its romney friend on the left. instead they are both still beige with a tinge of color.

up top we have purple, red, lilac, and black. the purple and lilac were dyed in the same batch. i had too much magenta, so i threw some of it in a purple dye bath and it came out this deep eggplant shade.

i still have about a pound of undyed romney in the grease. i had cold soaked it but it still contains lanolin. i don't much care for spinning in the grease, so i'll probably scour it and leave it undyed.

  1. So interesting! I wonder if there are humans out there that can't dye their hair? Or is it just alpaca?
