Bring magazines with color photos to cut up for your notebooks. You may share or not as you wish. Dyeing animal and protein fibers: acid dyes (afternoon): Explore the use of acid dyes to turn your stash of ‘boring’ protein yarns and fibers into designer yarns and fibers that you won’t be able to wait to knit, weave or spin up. You will learn how to put several colors onto a skein to make variegated yarns as well as learn to do immersion [single color] dyeing. We will dye with acid dyes [very safe and mild!] on wool, mohair, alpaca, soy silk, or silk fibers. Students may bring white or natural yarns or bring colored yarns to overdye. Overdying is a wonderful way to put pizzazz in a project. Instructor will provide handout, dye, citric acid, bucket, pH paper, neoprene gloves for handling hot fibers, rags.
