This stuff was really difficult to photograph. I think the photo above is a pretty good representation, but I had to mess around with the saturation a bit. Look at the attempts:
Flash, no flash, by the sunny window, away from window -- it went on and on until my batteries died. Sheesh.
At any rate, these are pictures of three different dyed fibers: light wool, greyish wool and light BFL roving. I took this picture (these many pictures) before I rinsed them out for the first time ever after having died them 2 1/2 weeks ago. I was hoping to document any color change.
Upon rinsing, the light yarn and roving gave up pretty much no dye. The super dark yarn gave up a bit though. As I type they are soaking in a warm, lovely scented bath:
Tomorrow the batteries should be fully charged and the yarn and roving should be relatively dry. Can the nice dark blue skein retain it's lovely color? Only time will tell.
