With wool you need to use vinegar instead of soda ash. Though you can use soda ash or vinegar(or other acid) on silk(a protien fiber), wool(a protien fiber) must be used with an acid like vinegar or acetic acid.
In addition, soda ash can make the fibers of the wool brittle. It will do this to silk as well if left to sit long enough.

Any how, try completely rinsing as much of the dye out and start over. Check out the directions at Dharma or at http://gfwsheep.com/dyeing/dyeing.html( personally I like these directions better b/c give more info, even though I too use Procion dyes)

Good Luck!
