So here we are with my brand new blog about my new adventures with hand dyeing yarn and fibre. I’ll be showing you what’s in the dyepot, having a look at the whole business of dyeing with hopefully a few helpful tips and tricks along the way.
Since the sun is shining, I thought we should kick things off with a bright variegated dye job:
This yarn has been handpainted with acid dyes and I love the vivid colours together. This would be a perfect yarn for socks or gloves, giving a fantastic pop of colour. The base is 100% superwash merino 4ply.
Reskeining yarn makes such a difference – and can often give you a bit of a surprise. If you are buying skeined yarn, it’s worth looking a bit more closely to see if has been reskeined as this will give you a good idea of whether you like the variegated colours together, how short the colour changes are and will give you a better impression of what it will look like knitted/crocheted up.
Enjoy the sun!
