Like the var­ie­gated yarns you buy in the shops, it’s pos­si­ble to dye your own wool with mul­ti­ple hues.

NZ Gardener - Gifts from the Gardens - - Crafts -

Fancy cre­at­ing your own var­ie­gated yarn? These dis­tinc­tive colour vari­a­tions are made by ‘paint­ing’ patches of white wool with your nat­u­ral dye. Ex­per­i­ment with the length of colour – short colour re­peats will give you nar­rower stripes on small items while long colour re­peats will give you wider stripes on small items.
