Baby Alpaca . . .

. . . Baby blues, and baby pinks.  My colours!

I dipped the skeins (the ones I'd already dyed with woad) into the madder root dye solution and heated it gently.  I didn't want a deep red for this as I thought it might overpower the blue.  I kept the heat quite low and took the skeins out after about 20 minutes.  That seemed to be enough to get the pinks I needed.

It doesn't look quite as good when it's made into a yarn cake, but it's knitting up nicely. Photos soon!
