This is the yarn I dip dyed in indigo.
I rinsed and rinsed
but
I should have rinsed again!

That has happened to me, too.
We are so ready to use are cool new stuff, right?
Very pretty though, I love the fiber in the sock.

This is some of the alpaca I bought from the alpaca farm. It feels great but I don't know how it will wear as socks. My hands were absolutely black last night. Fortunately, most of it washed off.

It is caused by the indigo vat being already oxidized. If the vat is not yellow to green that can happen. I don't think it can be corrected??? Not sure about that, though. You might end up with blue feet, too.
