Dying to Dye- Part 2

Here are the results from the fiber dyeing class I took this past weekend. I promised I was going to post part 2 yesterday but ended up leaving town after work to be with a relative who was feeling under the weather.

It's a good thing I was able to take pictures yesterday morning because we're back to our pattern of rain all day and night.

We tried a bunch of different techniques -

2 tries at hand painting

Crock pot

Low immersion

This one was fun- I dipped sections of fiber into two different colors and let it all mix around in a zip lock bag. It looks green but there are really different shades of greens, yellows and blues showing off.

And what turned out to be one of my favorites- solar dying. I honestly thought I wouldn't really like solar dying, I didn't have anything to base that assumption on but for some reason I thought I wouldn't really be into but I actually loved it the technique and loved the results.

Be sure to check out part 1 of the dyeing class 0f you missed it!
