Testing Dyes

While I'm waiting for more undyed yarn to arrive, I am doing some more dyeing. Today I tested Ashford dyes in the hope of buying some more. Sadly, my favourite dyes are only available in Germany, but Ashford is a great choice too. If anyone has other suggestions for good, brilliant dyes, let me know!

So this afternoon I prepped some superwash laceweight yarn and this is the result, still wet:
The green turned out semi-solid - it's yellow and blue Luvotex dye that I mixed before applying. The teal and purple/pink are both solid shades.

Now I've just got to come up with a good name for it!
