I recently immersion dyed some wool/alpaca yarn with "Scarlet", and as I knit with it, I see color on my hands. I used white vinegar in the water, and heatset it until the dye was clear (quite a while). What do you suggest I can do to get the color to be more stable?

Hi LIvy,

Did you rinse the wool after dyeing?

I tried a non-toxic fabric soap to remove excess dye and that seemed to work with red colorways in the yarn I dye. I have noticed however, that I have to rinse the red colorways 4-5 times more than with other colors. Most of the time I use red very sparingly and that seems to help.
