Hand Dyed Thread

I LOVE HDT!! I have lots of Lizbeth thread, & just ordered some of Yarnplayer's Midnight Oil. I decided to try my own HDT, since I already had some dyes.

Here's the result:

I'm ok with it, but would've like the colors to be more saturated.

Hi!
You have your comments up and running! I found you through Gina the Tatting Goddess. You've made a lot of pretty things! I like the colors of your thread - they sure compliment this pretty heart!

I love your hand dyed thread experiment. Very pretty. Maybe someday I will have to give it a try.

Thanks Ann! Sherry, do give it a try. Hand dyeing is sooo much fun, & it's really not hard at all if you have all the right ingredients.

Wow, your thread turned out great! Love you colors you put together. What kind of dyes did you try? I think you might have found another addiction.LOL!!

Katie said...

Yes, Carol. That could become another one! LOL! I use Procion dyes for dying cotton thread.
