When my children were small I took the opportunity to learn how to vegetable dye. I was living in the woods in Sweden and could forage for dye materials and had my dye pots boiling outside or on the kitchen stove, depending on the weather! I dyed with all kinds of vegetable matter and got comfortable with the variables and loved the subtle colors that often were the results.
I have now found my way back to dyeing but instead of vegetable matter I am using acid dyes and using them in a way to create subtle, romantic shadings on my Heaven's Hand yarns as a complement to the established colorways.
I will using all three of my Heaven's Hand yarns for my dyeing - Silke, Shaman and Sister Silk.
