Playing with yarn is fun. Knitting it, spinning it, crafting with it, and DYEING it! There are so many fun ways to dye yarn, you can use Kool-Aid and Acid Dyes, but you can also use natural dyes from leaves, nuts, bark and more.
There’s a wonderful book we sell at the Studio called A Dyer’s Garden that shows you all the natural world can offer to your yarn.
The Studio also offers a dyeing demo class to teach you about natural dyestuffs, and how different fibers and different mordants effect your final color.
