Product Description

In this great book, self-taught dyer Gail Callahan will show you simple techniques for dyeing yarn and roving that use standard kitchen equipment. Dyeing can be done in a microwave oven, a sturdy stovetop kettle, a crockpot, a traditional oven, or even an electric frying pan. Callahan covers singlecolor methods, self-striping and multicolored yarns with dip-dyeing, tie-dyeing hand-painting, and other inventive techniques. She provides detailed advice on color theory and types of dyes, including food colors and other "grocery store" dyes as well as the professional grade Acid Dyes. This book is great for beginning dyers. Soon you will be dyeing your own Indie Artisan colorways for knitting, crocheting, rug hooking, spinning, and weaving.

7.75"x9.25", hard cover, color photos, 168 pages.
