My first attempt at hand dyed roving

After having watched a ton of You Tube videos regarding dyeing roving, I finally took the plunge. Obviously it’s not much different than dyeing yarn, but I don’t know why I ever hesitated?

I used Teal, Violet, and Sky Blue.

5 minutes in the microwave and the dye exhausted.

I am really pleased with how it turned out.

Once it dries, I hope to have some more pictures and will post it for sale in my Etsy shop. It yields approx. 1.2 ounces.
