A while ago I was all geared up to try dyeing some yarn… or some cloth… well, it kind of got delayed, and delayed and didn’t happen.
But I did dye something recently!
I’ve been resisting the urge to dye yarn for a long time, mostly because I don’t get on well with chemicals, but the urge to do some simple dye work has been growing. Finally I thought I’d try a small project and that meant getting a small amount of a mordant . Not always easy to do.
But I had a hunch that if I asked my family if anyone had some alum there’d be a ‘yes’. There was!
This is the thing about my family; we have far too many hobbies. Guaranteed someone will have the random chemical etc that I need when I launch into my own new random interest!
Stay tuned for more posts on my mini-dyeing attempt.
