All About Color.... Mixing Blue....

Updated: Nov 16, 2020



Join me in my journey of exploring colors, this part of the adventure will be taking 2 colors and mixing them. Color A and Color B... Color A in this study will be Blue. Color B will change from Red-Pink, Yellow, and Brown... I did 4 to 5 samples of different shades...










First was mixing Blue with Red. For my sample yarn I used 75 yards, 1 oz of a 100% Targhee wool yarn pre-soaked. I found in my first study with Blue anything much over 1/4 tsp would not exhaust. Remember the ph level of your dye bath must stay in the 4.5-5 range for wool. Ph is super important in dyeing wool.

Here a chart showing the measurements I did for the Blue and Red study. All measurements are of dry powder and in teaspoons.


And here are the results....




Next was Blue and Pinks switching my measurements up a little...



Here are the results...
