Dyeing Day!

Such a productive day!  Made skeins out of lovely yarns from Henry's Attic.  They sell naturals to the trade for dyeing.  Lovely rayon/cotton blends with seeds, lovely rayon/cotton ribbons, yarns with twists and bumps.  I am smitten with all of it.  And dyes from Dharma.





Then every skein has to be rolled up in saran wrap and left for 24 hours to "cook."  Then rinsed, rinsed, rinsed...
and finally hanging on the line on the porch because it is actually raining out...weird winter.

  4. Gorgeous colour combos! The yarns look delicious and it's great to see the process. I've always wondered how it's done. LOL I've only ever done dip dying with my yarn in a big bucket.
