Dyeing My Own Yarns
Now that I have started to use 100% pure new British wools for my hand knitted products I wanted to take this a bit further and start dyeing the wools too. I have started experimenting with dyeing wools in a solid colour and also dip dyeing parts of the hanks as well. Living in Todmorden, West Yorkshire we are surrounded by fields of sheep and I love the idea of sourcing local wools to use in my products! I think the next stage would be to start spinning the wool myself too!
