PURPLE DYE




It is some yarn I dyed yesterday with food colouring. I bathed it and slowly heated it in a pan of pink food colouring then I added blue in a few spots around the yarn but I think I must have put a bit more than I should have because it turned bright purple in the pan. Once it had soaked the colour up and it was rinsed it showed the bluer bits up and the rest is a pinky purply shade.
Pan before the blue was added
end result
