Gotta Love Those Cochineal Bugs!

Several ladies from the Red River Fiber Arts came out to my house today and we played around with a couple of dye pots. The tea dyed yarn is lovely, but the cochineal is breathtaking! Without mordant! I will post more photos when the rest of the yarn has been washed. I finished up with a soak in Eucalan.

Mine turned out a nice pretty light pink, love it! I Have it hanging outside to dry right now.
