Dyeing To Play With Colour!
This will be fun class learning the basics of dyeing wool yarn using acid dyes.
Each participant will receive a skein of sock/fingering weight yarn (80% superwash merino, 20% nylon) and 2 skeins of worsted weight yarn (100% merino) to work with. Also a variety of dye colours will be available to work with.
We will create a varigated yarn with 3 different colours, a speckled yarn and a semi solid skein of yarn in one colour.
We will discuss how best to choose colours that work well together, along with adding contrasting speckles into your yarns. We will also go over the number of ways to get colour set into the yarn so it won’t bleed afterwards.
Materials to bring: wear old clothes, bring a plastic bag to take home wet yarn, a towel you can get dye on, an apron you can get dye on, rubber gloves.
