Learn to dye your own hank of merino yarn with all natural non-toxic ingredients. Katharine Gebbie of the wonderful 2 Minute Needles will take you through the dyeing process step by step using locally foraged dyestuffs.
What you'll learn in this natural dyeing workshop:
This is a class for knitters of any level and lovers of natural fibres and dyes.
In Katharine's workshop you will learn to dye your own 100gm hank of gorgeous merino - just the perfect amount to knit yourself a pair of socks (the merino has 15% nylon in it so the socks will last and last)
The results will be a yarn that is unique, a one-off, never to be repeated colourway with completely natural, non toxic dyestuffs gathered from our own neighbourhood. Using materials such as leaves and lichen to achieve a multi-coloured hank that knits up into a unique pair of adult socks, an item of baby clothing or anything you can dream up.
All materials included in the cost. * BONUS! Free sock pattern and double pointed needles! *
