Dyeing Shocker!

I finished spinning enough Corriedale to make a warp for the Corriedale/Alpaca … with the thought to weave a scarf.   I was looking for a corriedale_alpacacorriedaleway to come up with green… you know… blue and yellow make green.  Well..believe me…grape kool aid and lemon kool aid do not make green..lol  And just to add more yellow to the mix when I saw that  the purple was overwhelming, I added about a tablespoon of Rit yellow dye to the mix.  Immediate rust/burgundy color… I was so shocked!  I am still shocked every time I look at it!
