In this class you will learn how to dye yarns using an old crockpot that you can easilty pick up at a thrift store for $5 and an old wooden spoon. Once you use these for dyeing you'll not want to eat with them again. The dyes you will be using are Jacuard Acid Dyes, and they come in a powder form. Don't worry about the word 'acid' it simply refers to the fact that you will be adding white distilled vinegar to the mix to activate the dyes.


This class runs from 9-11am, in which time you will set up the yarn in the crockpot with the colors you want. You can choose 2-3 colors- they do tend to blend so you will certainly get more than 2 colors out when you only put 2 in. You can vary the effect that you get by how you lay the yarn down into the crock pot. Creating a striped effect, or a variegated painted look. One the yarns are set in the dyes, we can have a little sit down, eat some snacks, go over any quations you might have, or even knit! The dyes need to cook in the crock pot for several hours so from 11am to 5pm, you will be free to go and enjoy the rest of your Saturday. Then at 5pm, its time for you to come back to the shop and pull your yarns out of the crock pot and rinse out any excess color. Then you can take them home to hang dry.


With this class you will also get a blank silk scarf to dye in with your yarns to create a matching set. You may want to come to the store before the class and see what yarns we have available to dye, and plan out what project you want to make with them. The class fee includes three skeins of yarn, so you may want to do a project with three of the same skeins in the same color, or use different skeins and try different colors. It's up to you, some limitations do apply because we only have a limited number of crockpots.
