Purple Soldier Fly

I used the purple soldier fly recipe and class videos to dye this. I love how it turned out. This colorway is also beautiful on handspun...I tested it out by dyeing some handspun Romney and the luster really looks great... the Romney was grey.. it is the second photo. The first photo was my second try and I used alpaca, silk and merino. I love them both. The Romney was handspun that I was going to toss because it was not very pretty.. for me it was the bigger transformation.
