Apple Orchard

I tried a new dyeing technique and I am very pleased with the results. I love the control hand painting gives me, but dyeing yarn in repetitive sections can cause pooling in stacking. Of course the best way to create random repeats is to use the kettle dyeing methodology. The downside to kettle dyeing is that it can lead to unintended color mixes and is very difficult to control the final results. So I've been working on a scatter dyeing technique which blends kettle dyeing with hand painting to give myself the control I need while still maintaining random color repeats.
