- Overdyeing Chart
Using any dyes this chart shows you what happens when you dye colours over several colours of wool.
Running down the right hand side of the chart is a list of many common colours of wool we have on hand to dye. They are: tan, gray, natural, orange, yellow green turquoise, blue, violet, red, darker brown and darker grey. The chart assumes you are dyeing 1/4 yd of wool or about 3.2 to 3.4 oz.
Along the top of the dye chart runs the list of common dye colours: orange, yellow, green, turquoise, blue, violet, red, brown and black, The chart presumes you use 1/8tsp of dye to ove dye with.
This chart is about predictible colour interactions.
Now the magic happens when you follow the paths where the two things meet, dye and wool to see the interaction between them.
Say you have yellow wool and you want to see what it would look like dyed with violet dye.
You just follow the row down of violet dye until it meets with the yellow wool row and you'll see the colour you can kinda expect where they meet.
Where you might not now even imagine what woulds happen this shows you the ball park you can expect.
Of course ....All of this side and top stuff is hidden from view here.
