Dye Your Own Yarn Workshop

At the recent Lake Farm Park Wool Fest in Kirtland, Ohio
I took a Dye Your Own Yarn Workshop.

I came prepared with 3 skeins of my own yarn
100% Wool Worsted from Knit Picks ready to dye.

The 3 skeins of my own should be enough to make a
felted bag and I can't wait to get started!!

We used Country Classics acid dyes which are available from
Ellen's 1/2 Pint Farm.

Ellen, herself, was scheduled to teach this class, but unfortanately she was ill and could not make it. A local fiber artist filled in and it was very enjoyable.

We dyed soft roving (I'll have to learn to spin it next!), and a silk scarf.
