Learn to hand paint wool yarn using brushes and acid dyes. It’s more fun than is normally possible on a well-behaved day!
Students will learn some color theory, and then dye and process their yarn to take home a 100 gram skein of superwash merino sock yarn dyed in their own custom-designed colorway! And remember – sock yarn isn’t just for socks. Knit or crochet lovely shawls, neckwear or handwear with your one-of-a-kind yarn, or use it in your next weaving project.
No previous dyeing experience is needed. There will be some waiting during the process, so feel free to bring a project to work on.
