Fun with Fancy Fiber Kid Mohair

Monday Mary of Fancy Fibers Farm brought me some luscious clean, clean, clean mohair locks to play with in the dye pot.  When I it comes to dyeing I am like Peter Rabbit, "please, throw me in the briar patch".  Soft peach and pink tones have been eluding me, so I went after it.  I am still not totally satisfied, but what comes from the dye pot is never wrong, just maybe not quite on target.  I still love these colors and love them together.
Look for these to show up at Cordova Studios in little one ounce packs for you to play with.  I think I want to use them to do some more lock spinning like I did with my "Clementine" yarn.

Below is a shot of what the locks looked like spread out on the drying racks.  That hot pink is a bit of mystery wool I dyed in a mystery pink dye pot.  Love the surprises. 
What colors would you like to see next???
