Possibly this post should go in the knitting group instead of here, but the fiber in question hasn't become yarn yet so I'm not really sure...
Either way it is crafty to dye your own fiber so I'm not too far off topic, right?

I ended the Ravelry spinning event Tour de Fleece on a high note, and what else would I want to do after working with fiber for over 20 straight days but mess with it some more! I tried out natural dyeing using tea and blueberries on some white Shetland wool I'd bought.

Here's my finished fiber

And if you want to see how I did it, I posted step by step with photos in my journal

Oh this is dangerous, I've been wanting to do something like this for awhile. Thanks (or not) for posting a tutorial. ^_^
