More Bamboo fiber dyeing, using Rit dye

I really did want some of my fibers to be more muted than the results in the last post. So I took some more of my Bamboo fiber and used Rit dye to dye it.  I don't have a lot of Rit colors around the house. I have Golden Yellow, Lemon Yellow, and Royal Blue (and Black, which I did not use here).
I used the microwave method. I put a teaspoon or two of dye in about a cup of water, added the fiber, and nuked it in the microwave for two minutes. I mixed the Golden Yellow and the blue to get the green color.  I rinsed them in hot water a couple times in the sink. Here they are drying.
 And after I fluffed them up. I like the subtle colors.
More fiber dyeing tomorrow!
