It will felt, so caution should be used when dyeing. In the near future we’ll be posting the swatch from Secret of the Stole II completed with this yarn. The hank below was kettle dyed with Jacquard acid dye in Fire Engine red.

At Yarn Workshop we are proud to provide the raw materials for your creations, and are delighted when our customers send us photos of their creations. With your permission, we will be delighted to share those photos with all our customers.
TheWoolenDiva (her Ebay identity) has sent me these photos of her most recent creations. She dyed her yarn after using her knitting machine to create a sheet of knitted fabric, and used a dyeing technique called abrashing. Here is a photo of the sheet of fabric as it dried. The colour is Jacquard Pumpkin Orange #605. It looks amazing!
She then wound the yarn back onto the cone, where the beautiful variegated effect can be seen.
Here are the sample socks knitted up from hand dyed 75% wool/ 25% nylon sock yarn. The yarn was dyed using Dylon general purpose dyes, and the socks had been washed several times prior to the photo being taken. They continue to wear well, and are pleasantly soft.
More swatch samples will be posted in the near future.
