Spinning Mud by humphreyhippo

Spinning Mud

The second part of my dyeing disaster.
This is the Cormo combed top I was trying to dye with easter egg dyeing tablets.
Had too much water & not enough acid so all the colours just merged into a mud brown.
I tried to over-dye with purple, which all absorbed, but it doesn't look very purple!
After multiple dyeing attempts & washing, I thought this roving was hopelessly felted & expected to bin it, but after some careful teasing, it has proved spinnable. Very brown, but spinnable with a lot of persuasion.
Nice earthy colours.. make a nice scarf if nothing else..
