Interesting 1: Yarn dye techniques

Today’s experiments were dying yarn in the ‘cake’ so that the dye absorbs more on the outside of the skein and less on the inside. I’m really pleased with how this worked and want to do more of this in the future.  I think next time I will add dye to the middle of the ball too, not just on the outside.

And dying self striping yarn. To do this you have to make a really loooong skein of yarn and then dye a few different color sections. Here is how it turned out. It wasn’t as difficult as I thought it would be. The colors are not my favorite but the yarn is from a recycled sweater so it was good to experiment with.

I can’t wait to try dying more stuff!
