I started with three pieces of prepared roving purchased from the yarn shop.
Some of the roving was pre-colored
~ white, tan, and butter yellow ~
Tan and yellow pieces because I was curious to see how it would work with dying.
After some experimenting with Kool-aid coloring, Saran Wrap, the microwave,
more Kool-aid coloring,
over-dying the tan piece of roving a second time,
and spinning the poor tortured roving ..
..the spindle looked like this:
About 70 yards of single ply.
Wound into a ball ..
Love the way the colors came out!
