Yarns are dyed naturally, predominently with extraccts which produce results as unique as Mother Nature. It is recommended to carefully hand wash the yarn in cool/warm water using a PH neutral solution as many natural dyes are sensitive to varying PH levels and minerals and therefore using product which is more acidic or alkaline could cause the original colour to shift. Naturally produced colours can evolve over time and develop further characteristics.
During a Brambles & Me natural dye workshop you will be briefly introduced to natural dyes and how best to care for your yarn.
No experience is required as you will be guided through a selection of hand dyeing techniques to dye a skein of yarn using natural dye extracts. All materials are provided, it is advised to bring a towel or a bag to take your completed skeins home as they will still be damp.
For up to date Workshops please check the social media pages and the workshop section of the shop.
Please note, colours can vary according to different computer monitors. Care has been taken during photography to represent the colours as accurately as possible.
If using light and dark colours together, it is advised to test samples prior to use.
