Hand Dyeing Yarn and Fleece

Author: Gail Callahan

Fiber, color, and heat is all that is needed to create exciting new yarn colors. The recipe-style instructions lead readers through a variety of simple hand dyeing techniques that turn plain yarns into custom yarns.

Standard kitchen equipment is all that's needed to set up a kitchen dye shop. The author covers dyeing in a microwave, on the stovetop, in a crock pot, the oven and an electric skillet.

This book also includes instructions for designing self-striping and multicolored yarns with dip-dyeing, tie-dyeing, hand-painting, and other inventive techniques. Detailed information on color theory and types of dyes, including food colors and other "grocery store" dyes, make the entire process achievable for complete beginners.


A wonderful new skill that will appeal to enthusiastic knitters, crocheters, rug hookers, spinners, and weavers, hand dyeing is the next step in creating handmade fiber crafts from scratch.
