Yarn Dyeing Tutorial
|Tie the skein in 4 different places so that it does not get tangled during|
the dyeing and rinsing process. Be sure to leave it loose so
that the dye will take evenly and not leave a white line on the yarn.
|Put the pan into the oven, and bake at 350 for 45 minutes.|
The yarn should be steaming when you remove it from the
oven. Let it sit and cool; often it will absorb more dye
and exhaust the dyebath during the cooling process.
|Once it is cooled, dump the yarn into the sink and drain it, then|
rinse until the water is clear. The last rinse should have a conditioner
in it, to give the yarn a silky softness and bring out the sheen in the wool.
|Here is a finished skein.|
|And its ready to photograph. I twist the yarn as though I am going|
to skein it, and then coil it into a ball.
