Let's talk about dyeing. Do you? what do you like? Have you hand painted yarns, or batik dyed fabric? What brands and kinds have you used? Any fun tips and techniques you like?

I'm about to buy a stupid amount of alpaca yarn. It's a closed alpaca farm! They have 200,000 yards of yarn to get rid of! But, it's all natural, undyed alpaca colors. I'm thinking about crockpot dyeing it in blues and greens (probably Dylon dye, maybe Jacquard if I can find it).

What dye projects has everyone here gotten up to?
