I've got Blue Hands

After 3 days of classes this week it has been a nice change to get stuck into dyeing.

I needed to mix up a couple of the colours. I mix 5 grams of dye cold reactive dye powder into 2 litres. I usually double this and make 4 litres at a time. The dye brand I use lasts indefinately so I don't need to worry about it.

I've been dyeing our Matched Colour Blends.

These are Fat 1/4's.

This lot is the 1m Matched Colour Blends. I'm off to do a bit more before I go home. And the Blue Hands? Gloves had a hole.
