Overcame my fear of outrageous yarn bleeding and plunged the dayflower into a basin of tepid water with the merest hint of woolmix. While it did bleed a little, it was more a case of watery-blood-orange rather than abattoir-outrage. Heres a detail shot while it was drying.
And heres a shot of me modelling it.
Mods - well none really other than knitting until I ran out of yarn rather than the 20 or so recommended repeats. I used the recommended needles, Tilli Tomas Rockstar in American Beauty. Nothing like some shiny red silk and shiny red sequins!
