Passionate about hand dying yarn

Here’s my latest dye job.

I wanted to create some green yarn yesterday but I didn’t have time…so I came up with the idea of using a jar and letting the sun do the work.

I quickly set my plan in motion by

• soaking the yarn

• washing out the jars (which came from an ad FREE 18 1 gallon pickle jars—yay!)

• boiled a little water

• mixed up some colors

• put it all together

• nervously walked away

This what it looked like when I returned… so exciting.


After tons of rinsing this is what it looks like today.

What do you think?
