I used Jaquard acid dyes, and this one is called Burnt Orange. The yarn is 1.5 lbs of 50% alpaca, 50% wool.
Pretty bright in the pictures, actually looks more pumpkin-y. Plus the little halo you get from the alpaca takes the glow down a couple of notches.
I see a cable sweater in my future. I have 15oo yards!
The supplies came from dharmatrading.com, the place where I've bought my silk painting supplies for years. They started carrying some yarn and I though what the heck? Why not.
Of course now all I want to do is dye more yarn. This is way too much fun.
But I have a lot of commissioned work to do this week, so it'll have to wait....
