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.
