I asked a group of fellow indie dyers how they speckle, and I received quite a mix of responses. Everyone seems to use their tools (brushes, spoons, tea strainers etc) in such a variety of ways that I was inspired to start experimenting to see what MY way would be.
Experimenting with speckles is fun for me, and awesome for you too since you get to peruse the results! 🙂
These three skeins are speckled over a long period of time and with a lot of layers. When I can be patient and let the layers strike before adding more, I get such lovely results! Three skeins, all one of a kind (three of a kind?) as I didn’t take notes on the colours used…but they contain a few different greens, purple, hints of pink, yellow, white.

NOTES RE HAND-DYED YARNS:
Be aware that colors may appear differently on different computer monitors, but every effort has been made to portray them as accurately as possible.
All of my yarns are hand dyed and, as much as I attempt to match, every batch is one-of-a-kind. Be sure to order what you need as matching future batches are not guaranteed.
When using hand-dyed yarns in a project that requires more than one skein, it is strongly recommended to alternate skeins every other row of knitting to even out any differences.
Lastly, as with any hand dyed yarn, please expect minor imperfections and some variation from skein to skein (even within the same batch), as each skein is individually hand painted.
