I **love** my new slow cooker :D

I got a very bargainous 6.5 litre slow cooker off Amazon just after Christmas (the price has gone up since I got it)...and it kettle dyes perfectly!!! I have a little one for doing sock yarn too :)It dyes 200g of yarn brilliantly...and I can also get a decent amount of fibre in there too :) Need to experiment a bit more with the fibre though....

Anyhoo...this is some Alpaca~merino DK I dyed the other day, in a 200g lot....the colours are a bit deeper in real life, getting good pics at this time of year is hard ;)

Dying in a 'slow cooker'? :o lol I need to look into dyeing yarn. Do people really do that? I have 2 large, and one small, slow cookers. All given to me. Nice result with dyeing.

how long do you leave the yarn in the slow cooker for, the same as a steamer? The colours in that yarn are just so yummy!
