Hand Dyeing Yarn and Fleece | Gail Callahan

Learn to Dye Yarn & Fleece

In the book Hand Dyeing Yarn and Fleece: Custom-Color Your Favorite Fibers with Dip-Dyeing, Hand-Painting, Tie-Dyeing, and Other Creative Techniques by Gail Callahan, you'll learn about the bright joys of hand-dyeing your own yarn and fleece. It's simple, enjoyable, and can be completed in the comfort of your own home!

Gail Callahan, a self-taught dyer, demonstrates a number of simple procedures for transforming boring, obsolete, or leftover yarn into vivid "new" fibres using ovens, crockpots, frying pans, and other common household items. Colour theory, self-striping, "grocery store" dyes, and handcrafted multicolour skeins make dyeing a breeze, even for complete beginners. 

Dyeing yarn and fleece add to the textile artist's toolbox. This wonderful book teaches studio dyeing and safety, how to dye fabrics, how to use different types of dyes, and how to deal with colour. Seventeen distinct dyeing procedures offer a diverse range of intriguing ways to put colour on yarn or fibre.

There are also 9 knitting projects included in this book.
