Tag Archives: handdyed yarn

it was inevitable really

Take a girl with a fine art background and an obsession with yarn, and give her a bit of extra time. Sooner or later, this is bound to happen:

My first attempt at dyeing yarn. I used Procion acid dye, and painted the skeins with blue-y and yellow-y greens. I made lots of mistakes which resulted in the yarn looking nothing like how I imagined it would.

At first I thought I would overdye it. But, after reskeining and living with it for a few days, I am actually pretty happy with the colour.

The yarn is pure wool 4-ply, and I have got enough to make myself a scarf. I think it might turn into an Ishbel…
