I´ve been doing quite a bit of dyeing this week for a special scarf project. Here´s how it started…
September 2009 -I give a natural dyeing course to a group of very enthusiastic students in AC Textile Studio and I end up with small quantities of some of the woollen yarn samples. They´re a nice reminder of the fun we had during the course … but such small quantities of yarns – (about 20 – 25g of each colour) are no use for a weave project – I´ll have to dye more yarn in co-ordinating colours.
December 2009 – I dye about 1k (over 2lbs) of yarn with onion skins and brazilwood dye, darkening the onion colour with iron where necessary in order to get a range of colours which can work well together in a design – which can also use up the small quantities of yarns from the course.
Here are some photos of the processes involved in dyeing the yarn:
