What A Difference A Dye Makes

This is a tale of 5 skeins of 90/10 mohair/wool yarn that were dyed in a varigated colorway that no one seemed to want to buy. To be honest, I did not like it much either. Pale red and bright yellow blending into oranges, just really are not my colors.
I was debating whether to simply offer these skeins up at our guild Christmas swap, when a friend suggested that I over-dye them. We debated on colors and I ended up going with a bright turquoise (Jacquard).
And Wow! - what a difference. I may even keep these for me if I can find a pattern that suits them.
