Part 2 of the three part series on dyeing discusses dyeing wool with acid dyes to a specific color. I challenged myself to try and create the color wheels tertiary colors with dyes, and found some failures and successes along the way. Listen in as I talk all about all of that experience.
Music for today's podcast continues with the theme of color and is from the podsafe music network.
The interlude music is by Psykosoul and is called Coloring Outside the Lines.
The closing song is by Matthew Ebel and is called Every Color.
Enjoy and happy dyeing!
To Barbara and her question about how roving should feel after the dyeing process: I talked about this in Episode 52, I hope it answers some of your questions, as well as those that others have not asked.
Really enjoy all your podcasts- great music and info I really need! As a newish spinner/dyer you are such an inspiration to play and enjoy my hobby.
I have a question about how a roving should feel after it has been dyed. I notice that, not matter how hard I try, my roving feels like and sometimes has the consistancy of foam rubber after it is dyed. I tried less heat, steaming in the oven and all manner of ways of dying in hot water, but the wool does not draft well and just feels rubbery.
What am I doing wrong?

I have just caught up on your podcasts. Thank you for describing your thought processes as you go through these techniques, and for not editing out the efforts that didn\\\'t work as planned. I really learn from your experiences!
