Dyeing to Color!!

The One Pot Rainbow Dyeing workshop at Kid 'n Ewe & Llamas Too featured some really great colors from the dyeing pots.  What a fun two days of dyeing we had and colors galore were pulled from the pot.
Using only three color choices, this great combination of color burst forth in this one pot.

Using a camera lets the participant see where the powder hasn't dissolved yet.

This dyer used several shades of red to achieve this bright colorway.

Looking like the three witches from "Macbeth", the gals are marveling over the color blends.

Only two dyes were used in this pot.  You can still where the powder needs to be dissolved.

One of the trees was adorned with dyed wool and mohair fiber.

Lovely shades of blue and lavendar..........

Taking a break to visit one of the local wineries.  This one, Sister Creeks in Sisterdale, uses 1880's cotton gin as their winery base.  Here you can take a self guided tour, then sip samples of their blended wines. 

We are back to day two of the one pot dyeing workshop.  First pot is ready with dye powder--just a little dissolving is required.

What great color combination this is!

We have a chance to make a blend of colors in one pot dyeing method.

These gals couldn't resist spinning some of their dried fiber.



Loving these colors!  It was a fun dyed filled two days.  Now, waiting to see the final results from the participants.....................................
