So, out of the dye bath came the angora, and I let it cool to room temp, which took 5 hours. I then rinsed it to be sure the dye had taken (!), and pulled it out to see what I got.
Mixed results. The angora on the INSIDE of the rolls did not take the dye thoroughly. I suspected I had not let it sit in the dye long enough for the dye to permeate all the way to the center of the sausages BEFORE adding heat.
So, I divided the lot into two piles...the first looked good to me:
and the second needed redyeing:
I redyed the second lot and it came out great.
Tomorrow (or soon!) I will post the results of what I am doing with this fabulous stuff!
