I found out some interesting things after I dyed my soy silk fiber. Soy fiber is suppose to be dyed with acid dyes like wool. However, I dyed mine, before I got the memo, with direct dyes and they took really well with very little washing out of the dye. In fact it almost exhausted the dyebath(which has never happened with direct dyes) I took some and washed it to see what would happen. It lost none of it’s color and looks fantastic.  I used cushings direct dyes in wild rose.

Spinning this fiber was sooo easy. It really does spin like buttah. I may have to get some more of this fiber to blend I think it will blend beautifully.
