I have been scheming on trying some dyeing on some handspun yarn. This guide seemed really straight forward. Hopefully I will get to try it soon.
Learning how to kettle dye yarn can be overwhelming first. In this tutorial, I hope that I have simplified the process enough so that anyone can dye yarn in the comfort of their own kitchen. Please know that dyeing yarn does take a little practice. I highly recommend buying some cheap (100% wool) yarn to practice on. Knitpicks.com offers an affordable variety of yarn weights that you can purchase. Feel free to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions you may have. While I am not a pro yarn dyer, I have dyed many skeins of yarn. Some good, some not so good and some great! I really do feel that kettle dyeing yarn (esp. variegated) is sort of a crap shoot. However, the more experience you have, the more you know what not to do. Good luck and happy dyeing!
