More of the mohair from James' farm in Donegal. Washed using really hot water and lots of detergent and then dyed. I didn't find it very easy to get information about dying mohair but one site said not to boil it as it spoils the lustre and that it takes the dye easily. I kept the water just under the boil but if I wanted an even dye it would be necessary to soak the fibre really thoroughly before putting it into the dye pot. I wanted different shades of turquoise so it didn't matter that some was almost white. I then spun two bobbins of 25 grams and plied them with a glitter yarn. This is 50 grams and about 140 yards.
