Guild Dyeing Workshop

Dyeing process

On Sunday I ran a dye workshop for the Irish Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers. I think a good time was had by all, certainly some beautiful yarn was painted… I almost asked a few people to write down what they’d done so I could repeat it for the shop 🙂

The wonderful Jenny at Crafty Tails declared herself dye photographer, and kindly let me use her photos since I took none of my own.

Everyone got two skeins of yarn each, one the Swing Sock base (75% merino, 25% nylon) and the other Merino DK.  They had a selection of primaries to mix and play with, and come up with whatever colour they could think of. I helped where needed but mostly they played with colour and yarn. And they came up with some beautiful colours, don’t you think?

They all went home happy with yarn dyed by their own hands, I can’t wait to see what they look like knit up!

And since today is cyber Monday (and I’m feeling a bit of pre-Christmas cheer) I’ve put FREE SHIPPING on everything in the Etsy shop. Just for 24 hours!
