CVM Wool Dying

The first picture shows one of my Christmas gifts. It was from my sis and her daughter. Aren't they lovely!

I dyed some CVM wool this week. The CVM stands for California Variegated Mutant. CVM is a little shorter to say and the mutant thing does not have to be explained. I rainbow dyed the wool with mostly oranges and greens. There is a little purple, blue, brown, yellow and pink. When you rainbow dye, you do not stir the pot. If you do this, all of the color will blend together. I like the variations in color and I will not blend them all together when I comb the wool, so am able to keep the variations fairly true to color.
