As I wind down from dyeing for LYSs, I’ve dyed some yarn from my sadly-neglected etsy shop. I’ve especially enjoyed sprinkle-dyeing, perhaps because the results are always a bit different. It’s impossible to control exactly where the specks of dye will land, and impossible to know which of the specks of moss green will release a little orange, and which specks of lavender will release a little fuchsia.
In some of the skeins, I immersion-dye the yarn first. In one colorway, “Glacier Cruise,” I’ve sprinkled the dye onto a white skein. In my shop, I’ve described the process a bit more in each listing.
The first shot includes Fireweed and Dog Sled Team yarns, hand-painted in the traditional way–well, traditional for me, which involves using a medicine dropper.
I guess “hand-squirted” doesn’t convey the same feeling as “hand-painted,” although no one actually uses a paintbrush.
The final photo shows all the yarn currently available in my shop–the bottom row consisting of self-striping sock yarn.
