Is the very first one winter rainbow? It looks darker than the second, but I love it.

If I can crank out a few pairs of longies with my current yarn I'll be PM'ing you for another custom. :)

Yes the top three are the same exact colors, just the top is on superwash which takes the colors much brighter than the other wool yarns I pictured ;)

So pretty!! I've just tried dyeing my own yarn and I'm wondering how you get such vibrant colors. What kind of dye do you use and what method?

I use professional grade dye from Dharma or Jacquard :)
Also the superwash wool yarns take color very vividly.

Thanks for looking :thumbsup:
