I bought some dyes at Wonderwool and now I have some lovely white fleeces, I can have a go. Sally, do you not even open up the fibres a bit before you dye?

I didn't do anything to the fibres before dyeing, no, and have been delighted with all my results.  Got some Wensleydale going on the stove top tomorrow  :excited:

What make of dyes did you buy MGOM?  Had a look at a lot of sites and now am befuddled.
