Painted Warp: An Exercise in Spontaneity

The colorful yarn in the above photo is "painted warp" rinsing in a bucket of water. I was thrilled with the vibrant colors that occurred! I measured off my yarn and tied it into a neat bundle. I laid it out on the table, on a drop cloth, and "painted" it with MX fiber reactive dye. It sat over night covered in the plastic drop cloth and I came back the next morning to wash out the remaining dye. What a fantabulous way to start my Thursday morning! It is going on the loom tomorrow!
