Come solar dye yarn with me! Solar dyeing is using the sun’s heat, and in this instance some natural plant materials to dye yarn. I naturally dyed a whole bunch of yarns in a bunch of colors with plants from my yard, scraps from my kitchen and SUNSHINE! I’ll walk you through how to get started with solar natural dyeing- what you’ll need, tips and tricks, and some ideas of where to find amazing botanical colors in THIS VLOG, and this week we are revealing the results! What surprising colors I got, how I washed and dried the yarn, and everything I learned in the whole solar dyeing experiment!

Wanna come along for the adventure and see the amazing colors hiding in plants? Join me for part 2 of my solar dyeing vlog series!
