Never to be repeated

I left my recent dyeing experiment simmering for twice as long as it should have done, waiting for the dye water to go clear. It didn't, so I guess it wasn't exhausted once the skeins had taken all that they wanted. I let the pan go cool, popped in this 100g of white corriedale sliver, and brought it back up to the simmer again.


The result is nowhere near as deep in colour and a little bit variegated. The closest thing I can think of to this colour is a nectarine with a bit of a blush to it. So this is called nectarine, and I don't think I could do it again if I tried!
