Mum's dyed Yarn

 Mum pot dyed the above yarn . the Pink/red and blue were mixed well in the dye pot but the green was placed into the pot and then the news came on the TV to say there had been an earthquake in Christchurch new Zealand and mum forgot her dye for 15 minutes. when she removed the green it was mottled, a lovely effect. I don't think she will be able to reproduce it. green was Daintree, was two thirds kangaroo paw one third plum. the blue is kingfished     
This lovely yarn was syringe dyed in hanks. all of the yarn on this page were cream commercial yarn. Mum is going to knit slippers for all this yarn for sale at the hills spinners and weavers open day.
