Hand Dyeing Yarn and Fleece
Discover the colorful joys of hand dyeing your own yarn and fleece. It’s easy, fun, and can be done right in your own kitchen! Expert dyer Gail Callahan shows you a variety of simple techniques to turn plain, outdated, or leftover yarn into vibrant “new” fibers using ovens, crockpots, frying pans, and other standard kitchen equipment. Detailed advice on color theory, self-striping, “grocery store” dyes, and handmade multicolor skeins make successful dyeing a cinch, even for complete beginners.
“Writing this book has taught me that I define myself by color. Learning to express myself and teach others has taught me there is no mystery to color, just a journey into our own preferences. We all like what we like because we are individuals. I do not intend to persuade anyone to adopt my own sense of color, just to reveal it to them. I hope this book will give readers tools to reveal their own color sense, as well as teach the basics of dyeing and yarn and fleece.” Gail Callahan
