All you gotta do is dye as how you'd usually do it as the Donegal Neps resist acid dyes, so they remain the same colour after dyeing resulting in a speckled effect. The Donegal Neps in this blend are in black, white and tan.
Our range of Ready-To-Dye yarn are pre-scoured so you can focus on the actual dyeing. All you have to do is to fully wet out the yarn in warm water for at least 3 hours or overnight before mordanting and dyeing.
