Here’s your chance to custom-dye wool yarns for use in your projects! We’ll be doing immersion or dip-dyeing of wool and we’ll also have an indigo vat ready to go. Bring your own yarn or wool fiber to dye, in an amount no more than two pounds 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 unspun fiber, bring a lingerie bag or something similar to contain the fiber. Wash your wool 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 right at the start of dyeing, 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.
