Yarn Dyeing

For another swap I did, I was keen to create a deep red yarn. My first, using food colouring, resulted in a dark browny/black wool (I used too much black to 'deepen' the red). The second attempt, using wine red gel colours, resulted in a semi solid pink yarn, and my final attempt, using three bottles of Hansells Red food colouring, resulted in quite a bright red yarn. It wasn't as deep as I was planning, but it's vibrant and I really like it!
