Behind the Scenes : Dyeable Yarn

Posted by

Do you recognize these yarns from the "Great Finds" section in the November issue of Living? Did you know that we dyed them ourselves? Dharma Trading has a new selection of natural yarns for dyeing—about 50 different kinds!

We dyed our yarns the day before the photo shoot, and since they needed time to dry, we took this shortcut to making yarn balls.

Voila!  A styrofoam-ball-center saved us a lot of yarn winding.

You'll also find some companion "Great Finds" for this yarn in the issue—ebony knitting needles and a fun new knitting book.  You'll have to check out the November issue of Living to see all the other "Great Finds" from other departments! Want something to do with your new knitting finds? You'll also find two very quick, very easy knitting projects in November's Living.
