I’ve always been interested in dyeing yarn, so many color possibilities that you just can’t find in a regular hobby store. The past couple of days I’ve been messing around with different powder fabric dyes and food coloring.
What do you think?
I’m starting a new Friday series called – Fiber Friday! I’m going to be highlighting my favorite yarn and fibers to work with.
Let’s start with the basics – cotton! My current favorite 100% cotton is I LOVE THIS COTTON found at Hobby Lobby. It’s the in house generic brand but by far the best cotton yarn I’ve used, and the easiest to work with.
Pros: Rarely splits, soft feel, good value, lots of fun colors.
Cons: Doesn’t stretch, no skein size variations
