Natural Dyeing Workshops – Gradient Yarns
June 2 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Explore naturally dyed gradient yarns during a day full of interesting discussion and hands-on experience. The workshop will be co-hosted by Brooke Sinnes of Sincere Sheep yarns and Kira Dulaney of Kira K Designs, and held at the backyard dye studio of Sincere Sheep in Napa, CA. We will dye two four-ounce yarn blanks of Sincere Sheep Cormo Fingering yarn plus one four-ounce skein in a solid color. Blanks are skeins of yarn that have been machine knitted into fabric for dyeing, then later unraveled into yarn ready to knit, crochet, or weave. Participants will also have the opportunity to purchase additional pre-mordanted blanks or skeins to dye.
We will meet 10-4, with an hour break for lunch. All workshop materials will be provided, but attendees are responsible for their own meals and lodging. After the workshop is over, we will have an optional field trip to Yarns on First, Napa’s local yarn store, with a 10% discount for our group.
