It all started when we went out to Ohio, I picked up this package at a 2nd hand store. I got it mostly because I'd never seen thick-n-thin yarn quite like this, plus I thought the patterns might look cute in different yarns.
So I wound the yarn into skeins.
Then I had some yarn that I wanted to dye so I would actually use is, so I decided I would dye them together in Yellow, Red, Blue, and Purple.
Here is the pink over-dyed. I forget to take a picture of the other ones by themselves.
Here are the comparisons, both types of yarn were dyed in the sames colors. The thick-n-thin is 100% cotton and on the right side. The thicker, previous tan like color, is Debbie Bliss Stella (60% Silk, 20% Rayon, and 20% Cotton)and is on the left side.
Yellow - you can see the Debbie Bliss turned a light Olive green color, while the cotton is a bright yellow.
Blue - the Debbie Bliss is a lovely light blue, while the cotton is a vibrant blue
Purple - the Debbie Bliss came out more of a Rose Purple and the cotton is a very deep pink/purple
Red - the Debbie Bliss is a soft pink, while the cotton is a bright pink/red
I have started crafting with the over-dyed Debbie Bliss and will share that with you in a couple of days.
