      👿 Hello everyone. Bought me some uncleaned and unwashed mohair and done the cleaning or washing it. Just got dyeing me some pretty colours to tie with. Hope you like. Thanks for looking.

      Best Regards, Ken

        Looks good, the colors are very vibrant. What did you dye them with?

              Ken,
              Saffron being the most expensive spice in the world per pound, I hope you didnt need very much of it.

                Not much Bass-Bug of it. Only used a small pinch of it.

                    I like the RIT but they don’t carry Fluorescent colors in it. I tried the Veniards Fly Dye in fluorescent and they came out nice.
