Dye Day

I am not a dyer, but I do enjoy a dye class now and then. Still, during the dog days of sheltering in place, there I was. I cleaned out my weaving closet and there was that back corner of dye supplies and a bunch of already prepped yarn. The weather has been mostly perfect lately, so I dove in.

I dyed three cotton warps, two skeins of chenille, and some fabric pieces.

I space-dyed the warps and chenille by laying them out flat and pouring the dye over them.

Above, forty wine coasters I found in my late mother-in-law’s linens, soaking in a bucket of blue.

Below, the yarn stayed wrapped up overnight, and was washed and put out to dry the next day.

Below, I’m not sure what I will do with these little coasters, but I sure do like the way they turned out!
