Today, I took my first foray into hand dying yarn. It's something I have been thinking a lot about lately, and after much research and some investment, I took the leap. If you care to, follow along as I dye my first yarn!
Once it has soaked at consistant 175 for ten, citric acid is added. The temp is then slowly raised, until the bath is cleared, or mostly cleared.
I really wanted a yarn with more than one color, but I'm not quite ready for handpainting. So I decided to cross my fingers and repeat the process again with just one half of the yarn.
All in all, I am so proud of myself. These pictures honestly don't do the color justice. The dye was awesome, and organic too!
So all of this inspired a giveaway! Enter here!
