Results of Easter Egg Tablet Dyeing

Here are the results of my Easter Egg Tablet dyeing experiment.  


Made mini skeins using Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Bare Fingering weight, 12 yards each. Perfect for hexipuffs.
From left to right
1.  Blue & Green mixed
2.  Red, orange and yellow mixed
3.  Blue and denim blue mixed
4.  Yellow and Red mixed.
5.  Green
6.  Blue and red mixed
7.  yellow and orange mixed
8.  using up the rest of green and blue mix
9.  Mix of yellow, red, and orange in one jar. This one was 24 yards.  

Also did a few with Wilton's kelly green and brown...



And I dyed one hexipuff using Wilton's and Easter egg tablets...

As I noted in my previous post, the Easter egg tablets were fun to try, and great for getting bright colors, but not the most vibrant colors compared to Wilton's or Greener Shades Dyes.

  1. They look so cute! I bought a bunch of Easter egg kits to try too. I'm excited to experiment! (And maybe to stick glitter stickers and egg stands all over my house.)
