Blogging from A-Z April Challenge – D is for..

Dyeing!

I love colour. It’s been my pleasure to work with it for over 30 years. I’ve been producing a range of hand threads, fibres and fabrics since I was first introduced to the process in the late 1980s.

Over the years I have developed a number of techinques to produce many mixed colours.

The above are cotton embroidery threads, but I also dye wool, silk and alpaca, which require a different method.

I’m not suggesting you watch the whole thing – but there is even a video of me dyeing here. It shows the first basis of one of my techniques – of course, I have developed it much further for my own use. I sell my threads via my own website and also Etsy, but mostly at shows as I know customers love to handle the goods before purchase 😉

Due to family health problems and the recent death of my mother the shops have been relatively inactive for a while. However, Etsy will have stock before the end of this week.

 

Posted for the April A-Z challenge. All posts for this challenge will relate in some way to my creativity.

I dye. Colour is my business and I using a variety of materials. I also enjoy enabling other creatives to enjoy their art. Some of my blogs are kept as daily records. Take a look and you will see.
