Wacky Alpacky Winter Rainbow, Dino Dudes & Floral Hues & more dyed yarn :)

I've been busy with shirts but finally had time this weekend to dye up some yarn!!!

Here we go....

Emily's Winter Rainbow







Minus the top color, this inspired my Floral Hues yarn...



Custom Bulky Superwash



Another Custom on MMW


Some Packers Custom (but I like to think of the Oregon Ducks since I am partial to them over the Packers )

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
