Dye Day

Decided to do more dyeing today but makes for a long day when I don't start until after I get back from yoga. But I did get 10 pounds of merino dyed, 20 colorways, each approx 8 ounces each. There is definitely at least one colorway I'll be keeping, maybe two. Most will end up in my etsy shop within the week.
On the weaving front I'm busy winding scarf warps to paint (dye) - there are warps in bamboo, tencel and rayon. I have more to wind before setting up for those dyes which are fiber reactive dyes rather than the acid dyes used for the wool roving.
