A Great Dye Day
We had a great time a couple of Saturdays ago with five lovely ladies. We played with color and dyeing techniques and we had a blast. It was our first time to dye spinning fiber in a workshop and I'm very pleased with the results. We got wonderful color on the fiber and the yarn and everyone went home with at least three items they dyed.
We vat dyed, dip dyed and roaster dyed which just like hand painting but completely different. We also stewed up a vat of onion skins so everyone had a chance to see a natural dye that does not require the yarn to be pretreated with a mordant.
We had a fabulous time! I'll let you know when we schedule another dye day in case you would like to join us.
