The next new Quilt University (www.quiltuniversity.com) class, Dyeing Wool is coming along. Above you can see my first round of experiments using acid dyes on wool fabric, a bit of roaving, and yarn. Glorious.
In lesson one we dye bold bright colors as well as multicolored and variegated colors. Next week I will show you what's up for lesson two and three.
One of the very best things about acid dyes is that what you put into the pot gets used up so you know there are no left overs. This is the "after" shot....
Just ordered some exotic yarns to test. Yahooooo!
The wool yarn, roaving, felt, and fabric will be available on my web site sometime in December so you can get started collecting your supplies for this online class.
I expect Wool Dyeing to be available early 2011. Are you ready??
