What are you most proud of? That I managed to work out the quantities of dye, water and vinegar needed for very small amounts from some vague instructions based on dyeing about a kilo of wool 3 colours...lots of maths :)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Read through the instructions first, gather your materials together, start with a nice clean work area and give yourself plenty of time so you don't feel rushed. If you want to reproduce colours, keep detailed notes. This method of dyeing was tried succesfully with handmade felt.
