Kete blankets

 The brief was for "hay" or kete blankets.
I tried something different with dyeing the mohair this time.
Soaked the balls in warm water and dish liquid then put them in the dye pot as a ball instead of the usual rewind to a skein.  Naturally the outside of the ball was quite dark while the inside was just a pale cream.  Carefully wound the pirns to get a flow of colour; one ball outside to inside and the next inside to outside.
