A message from Judy and Linda
If you want to experiment with dyeing plant fibers we will have directions and dyes for everyone to use or just come and watch!
- If you want to dye please bring:
1 warp, 3 yards or less long, 150 ends or less, cross tied, and warp loosely tied every yard
- 1 skein, 4 oz or less, loosely tied
- 1 bag of fiber, 4oz or less
- Disposable gloves
- Plastic bag to take your project home
Plant fibers, cotton, bamboo, rayon, tencel, (silk will also work, even though it isn’t a plant)
Soak your fiber over night in water with about 1/2 cup of salt, dissolved, and a squirt or 2 of dish soap. Make sure you have enough water to cover the fiber and for it to move around (kinda like a pot of spaghetti). The fiber needs to be wet when we dye it.
