I never would've guessed I could get this excited over a pot. I love it! I added a massive stainless steel brazier style pot to my dyepot collection. It's huge! The pot needs 2 burners to heat and barely fits on my stove. I can fit up to 1 lb of fiber in it.
I wanted a pot with a lot of surface area for kettle painting fiber and yarn. I like the stockpot style but the dyes don't get to the fibers on the bottom without stirring. We all know what stirring hot fiber does! With this pot there is no stirring needed. :D The pot is wonderful because its shallow and not as heavy as a stockpot would've been.
I've been experimenting with heat, acid, and dye recipes. Sometimes the dye colors splitting is really beautiful so I've been tracking at what temperature and how much acid is needed for certain effects. Here are some of my experiments so far.
