This is one of the things that I love to do. I use professional wool dyes, so that is resists fading. This wool was for a swap, and we (meaning my sister and I) are very proud of it. We used Knittery wool and also Bendigo wool. The more vibrant colours are the knittery, its also a lot more $$
And this is what it looks like wound up. The last one is only a small ball as my 3yo son got to it with a pair of sissors, and cut up a $20 ball of wool! I was not impressed! I actually didnt realise till I went to wind it as it didnt look like it had been touched. My faviourite is the top one with 5 bright colours. My sisters faviourite is what she called 'goldfish', thats the red, blue orange and white.
