Got your eye on a lovely fade pattern? Want to knit or crochet something in an ombre yarn? If so, this dyeing workshop is for you!
This half-day workshop teaches you how to get varying depths of shade when dyeing yarn. We will explore how to create different shades from a single dye colour, and create a mini-skein fade set to take away.
We will then explore the ways to create an ombre or gradient yarn. You will create an ombre using a sock blank and we will discuss other methods which can be used to achieve the same effect.
200g of yarn are included in the price of this workshop:
- a set of five mini skeins (choose either a Merino DK or Merino 4-ply Sock Yarn)
- a sock blank (choose either a single or double stranded 4-ply merino sock blank)
Maximum 6 participants per workshop.
