First Yarn, First Dye

Here it is, my first real hand spun yarn.  I don’t call what I did before my ‘first’.  This fiber just felt right when I was working with it.  I have a long way to go, but I think I might get there.  This is spun from undyed Merino top from Paradise Fibers.

I used Wilton paste food coloring, Royal Blue, to dye my yarn.
