Dyed wool for cat toys

Here are the colors I dyed to make some more cat toys - most is mixed breed wool but the yellow is merino. My sister Rebekah helped me dye the wool. We used the "paint and steam" method.

Copper Silk

Here's some silk I dyed with acid dyes combining Aztec Gold and Chestnut Brown in an attempt for copper colored. I tried this due to a discussion I had with Anne on the felting forum. I think I should have added more brown and a slight touch of red.
