1 Day Study Group with Textiles Studio Members

Here’s your chance to custom dye wool yarn! We’ll be doing immersion or dip dyeing of wool in acid dyes or in indigo.
Bring your own yarn or wool fiber to dye, in an amount no more than one pound total. If you’re bringing yarn, make it into skeins of ¼ pound or so. Skeins should be tied with figure 8’s in four places around the skein so we avoid tangles. If you’re bringing un-spun fiber, bring a lingerie bag or something similar to contain the fiber.
Make a note of the dry weight of your wool, and then wash it the evening before, in some gentle cleaner such as Syntrapol. Rinse it out after washing, and bring it damp. You don’t need a mordant, and we’ll add some vinegar to the dye bath which will help fix the color.
Dyes and other supplies will be provided. Wear old clothes, so you won’t mind if you get a little dye on yourself.
