Oven Roaster Dyeing

I finally got the chance to try the oven roaster for dyeing. I tried to zig zag the roving over the bottom, but I still got huge patches of color (above, left). So I took more care placing the roving making sure I was going from one side of the pan to the other. I also dribbled thinner lines of dye (above, right) rather than pouring like I did before. The results were much better (bottom, left), although in both trials the mustard was absorbed into the other dyes and I got very little gold. The bottom right picture shows some mohair with a combination of blue and turquoise.


  1. Nice, and quite a bit more even than mine -- how much roving were you able to dye at one time?
