Galaxy's Partner Solar Flare

THE SPOTS- it took 1 hr 30 mins.. @ 350 ˚ F to process this.
Gather up 1/2 yd of wet wool in peaks and valleys, add 1/8th tsp. citric acid to each dye solution, pour in stripes or spots in a checkerboard pattern. Don’t mess around too much with the wool after you pour the dye on so you can get the stars in the dark sky effect.
All Majic carpet but try other dyes if you don't have these.

1/2 tsp. Orange
1/2 tsp. Red
1/2 tsp. Red Violet
1/2 tsp. Yellow
1 tsp. Moss Green
1 tsp. Black


  1. You did not say how much wool used for this piece. 1/2 yd. or 1 yard.? Quite a lot of dye so not sure.

  2. Hi Fish Woman,

    This is dyed over 1/2 yd !
