Two Day Dyeing Class at WEBS in Northampton Mass

In this two-day dyeing class, students will explore all aspects of color before diving in and getting into the dye pot. Many factors affect color on fiber: the spin of the yarn, the fiber content, and the type of fiber. We’ll start with a tour of the warehouse and discuss different types of yarn and suggest how they would take color. Using only red, yellow, and blue dyes, students will leave the class with small skeins of 36 colors all made from these three primary colors. We’ll also talk about how to change the color of yarn that has already been dyed, whether it is a commercially dyed yarn or a hand-dyed one. There are always ways to resurrect a beautiful yarn in an ugly color.

You don’t have to be a knitter to take this class. I have had students who want to learn how to dye silk scarves, or dye a warp for weaving.  Contact me to talk about this!

New Product

Elegant Silk Cowl Hand Dyed by the Kangaroo Dyer.

The silk is dyed in small batches, making each one unique.  The circumference is large enough to surround the neck either once or twice.  Also know as an infinity scarf, these cowls are light weight, yet warm and comforting.  They sit nicely under a blouse for an extra touch of warmth and color without any weight.

Avaiable in 5 Colors – Sienna, Persimmon, Hyacinth, Sky and Mossy Rock. See the picture in the gallery images. Indi cate your color preference in the comment section when checking out.
