Dyeing Fibre

Well, I am not entirely happy with my first attempt at dyeing spinning fibre. I was told I would need more dye than usual, so I was quite generous, but the colours still aren't nearly as brilliant as I had hoped. It may well turn out quite nicely once spun up, but at this point the fibre just looks very boring to me, particularly because the colours are too much like some I already have. Had they been deeper, it would have looked quite different.

I will either have to give this a go again with new fibre or I might just dye spun yarn to make it easier.
