How to Dye Roving with the Low-Water Method. 5 of 5 Dyeing yarn in low water is similar to immersion dyeing because the fiber is immersed in a dye bath, but is also similar to hand-painting because you pour the colors directly onto the fibers while they simmer.

How to Dye Roving with the Low-Water Method

Working with low water gives you some control over the application of color and the spread of the dye. Since there is less water, there is less opportunity for the dyes to migrate. They strike wherever they make contact with the fiber, producing beautiful results in a less controlled fashion. This process creates a trio of rovings in related colors. Pay careful attention with fine wool to avoid felting. Begin by gathering these materials: 12 ounces (227g) Cormo wool and silk-blend roving Citric acid crystals 250ml dye stock of each color WashFast: Reddish Brown, Plum, and Chinese Red 20-quart pot, wide and shallow Squeeze bottles Long-handled spoon or tongs Thermometer Divide the roving into three 4-ounce hanks and create tied bundles.

Indigotier et pastel : teinture à la cuve.

Du bleu, du bleu, du bleu, le pastel et l’indigotier sont les incontournables des teintures végétales, pour le bleu solide qu’ils procurent.

Indigotier et pastel : teinture à la cuve

Ce sont deux plantes contenant de l’indigotine, un pigment bleu. Le Pastel, Isatis tinctoria, pousse dans toute l’Europe, tandis que l’on ignore l’origine de l’indigotier, indigofera tinctoria, plante des régions chaudes, parce que sa culture est trop ancienne (plus de 4000 ans !). Je me suis d’abord entraînée à teindre avec l’indigo, avant d’oser essayer le précieux pastel. Différence de tonalités entre indigo (en haut) et pastel (en bas).

Knitting Iris: Natural Dyeing

I promised so long ago that I'd get all the yarns I dyed last spring and summer up and for sale, sometime around last November, wasn't it? Obviously, I never did. A handful of thoughts, questions, and excuses that have been preventing me from doing so before now: Will I be able to photograph and represent the colors properly? Do I need a light box? After ignoring all of these and more questions and concerns all winter, it's high time to just dive in and address them, no? Each skein of yarn is individually dyed which takes considerable time, attention, and care. As for the scale, yes, I use the kind of kitchen scale with a dial on the front but with the ones that I skeined up from bigger cones (those that weren't purchased as pre-weighed skeins) I've overshot the weight by enough to make sure they're over the 100 grams stated. Dye materials are gathered or harvested with the utmost care and consideration.

Yarns titled 'wool and wool mixes' have colour codes which are generically applicable to all Aran, luxury mix DK and 4ply garments in the Garments and KnitKits pages. The only exception to this are the natural shades of the undyed Shetland yarns (mid brown/dark brown and three shades of grey) these are available ONLY in Aran weight yarns.Cream yarn is available in Aran/DK and 4Ply weights.The nature of natural dyes, depending on where and when they are collected, whether the dyestuff is used fresh or dried means that colours cannot be exactly replicated.
