Hel-loooooo Dyers!

We are very excited about receiving our first shipment of Jacquard Acid Dyes today! We carry all 40 colors, and you can mix and match those to your heart's content.

Acid dyes, as toxic as they sound, aren't really at all, and are very easy to work with. All you need to add is vinegar. And yarn or roving, of course! Acid dyes work best with animal fibers, and we have plenty of undyed Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn, Lorna's Laces Superwash, and roving from Louet upon which you can let your inner artist loose.

Keep an eye on this space as we put the finishing touches on our dye bar. We'll let you know when the classes and 'studio time' are available!
