Went to Goodwill today and found a sweater to take apart for test yarn for dyeing (thanks cheezepoof for the suggestion!). It’s 80% lambswool, so I figured that would be decent enough for a test. It was the only one I found that had the most wool too XD
That ball there is about 4 oz of yarn, which ended up being roughly one arm. The sweater was knitted with a double strand, so I didn’t have to take apart too much to get a decent amount, thankfully. Plus it’s extremely labor intensive taking it apart, so I ended up just stopping XD
