Hey, what are friends for?
Culinary Colors dyes from the French Creek yarn shop. Pack of 10 colors with foodie names. Nutmeg, strawberry, blueberry, lime, tangerine, lemon, grape...broccoli (!?!)
One eighth of a teaspoon + a half cup of water + a teaspoon of vinegar.
Soaked the yarn for a couple of hours and laid it on Saran Wrap to start playing. Dee wore an old shirt and it actually stayed that white the whole evening...
This was dyed the colors of Biscuit, my sun conure,
Wrap and nuke for 5 minutes (Irish beer optional, but a totally good idea)
Fresh out of the microwave -- one hot, steamy yarn sausage -- Yum! :P
The hanks after rinsing, hanging in the shower
Also dyed some roving for spinning
And some silk throwster's waste
And some silk hankies
You are making this look very tempting. I've not done any yarn dyeing yet but it looks so preeeeetttyyy...and its another excuse to drink beer! LOL!
