Yarn Dyeing

We’ve been trying to get a yarn dyeing class on the schedule for a while now and it’s finally here.  We will be teaching students how to customize there yarn colorways to create an entirely unique skein of yarn.  We are going to be dyeing Cascade Yarn Heritage, a lovely sock yarn in a  sturdy blend of 75% superwash merino and 25% of nylon means your socks will last, and be easy to care for, but also soft!  This class will teach you the basics of yarn dyeing with only a few simple ingredients and no mess.

The class is $25 and will be held Friday, May 30th from 1:00pm-4:00pm.  All the supplies are included in the class students only need to bring a crock pot to dye in, the dye is chemical free so you can still use your crock pot to cook ;).  Students will need to sign up and pay for the class by Thursday, May 29th because of the soaking prep work that has to be done to the yarn prior to the class.  I am also encouraging people to bring projects to work on while the dye sets up, the process takes a little while so we will be chatting and knitting between steps.  This is going to be fun, I can’t wait to see everyone’s different colorways!  -B

    I just happen to stumble in when this was going on. Boy did I find a new hobby. I loved watching all this take place. Please notify me when you have another class. A friend & I want to attend. Loved it. So please put me down for 2 seats.
