Dyeing again

Well I tried dyeing some of my angora again.  I got a new dyeing fiber and yarn book and I just followed some instructions there-in.  They instructed to soak the yarn in a vinegar-water mix and then squeeze out the water.  Add the dye and heat.  I spot-dyed this fiber and I think it turned out just like I wanted it to.  I wanted to keep some of the grey but still have the blue.  Can't wait to spin it!  This is just a half ounce of Black Giant angora, compliments of  Jan's Giants.  I also dyed another half ounce and have it drying.  I fluffed this up to get it dryed faster.  Next post will be of the spun yarn.  Cool huh??
