Having mastered the basics in the Introduction to Yarn Dyeing workshop, you will learn some more advanced techniques of dyeing yarn including dip dyeing and dyeing sock blanks. You will explore colour mixing and depth of shade, and learn what can go wrong when hand-dyeing yarn and what you can do to avoid/fix mistakes.
Two skeins of yarn (choose either Merino DK or Merino Sock Yarn/Sock Blank) are included in the price of this workshop.
