Dyeing weekend outcomes

As I suggested earlier… it was once more into the dyepot for my kilogram of wool.  This time, Landscapes ‘Bloodwood’.  I am still soaking and rinsing it, but I am much happier with the outcome so far.  Here it is in the dyepot for the second time:

The silk noil printed beautifully and perhaps it will become pillowslips…

And my efforts to spin bulky, soft, squishy yarn are yielding some improvements.  This is polwarth from a pet sheep that lives in the hills, carded and spun three ply.  The sheep is mostly white with a pale brown patch or two so I can create yarns with some variegation, which I love.
