Experiments with Acid Dye + Wool

Experiment with Acid Dye + Wool

Today I dyed a piece of felted wool that I had bought for my pillow prototype. I have worked with fiber reactive dyes before but never with acid dyes. It was fairly easy, just boiling water and some vinegar. All I have to do now is get my hands on a steamer, any leads anyone? I made thickne which is sitting in the fridge, thickening as I type and tomorrow I am going to try my hand at printing with acid dye.
