The Dyer's Notebook - Episode 140

Episode 140 - Post Rhinebeck 2015



Viewer Question:
"I have just begun dyeing yarn and wool. I try to dye every other day. So far I have about 8 skeins, and am starting to dye roving tonight. I am using acid dyes. I have been doing kettle dyeing (immersion dyeing) and I am trying for variegated. I feel somewhat frustrated. I still feel like I don’t really know what I am doing, or the colors aren’t coming out like I imagined. Once they dry, I begin to like them. How long did it take for you to feel comfortable with the process?"
