Sun April 8th - Sock Yarn Dyeing, Striping, Pooling, Speckling

$200.00

How many ways are there to dye sock yarn? As many as you can imagine! In this camp session we will learn and experiment with as many of these as we can squeeze in to a day. After we go over some basic dye principles we will discuss and experiment with dye techniques for specific knit results. Our explorations will include all kinds of dye patterns (striping, pooling, speckling, grading) for sock yarn and therefore sock knitting. There will be math and a discussion on gauge as it relates to hand-painted sock yarns.

  • Blue Moon’s well stocked dedicated dye barn!
  • Dyestuff
  • Yarn: 4 - 200 yd skeins of sock yarn... if we have more dye time, you can purchase more yarn
