Yarn Dyeing with Indigo – This is so cool!

Yarn dyeing with indigo was way cooler than I imagined. It started out green! Really, green, I’m not kidding. I never knew indigo had an oxidation process, and it was really neat to watch. Plus, I had a blast coming up with ways to “tie” the yarn with rubber bands to get all sorts of cool designs.

This is our third installation of Adventures in Yarn Dying with Jessie At Home. There are two more still this year, so the fun will continue!

Wet Felt Join

The wet felt join is a great join for a feltable yarn – such as most animal fibers. It’s best used when joining the same color, as when joining a new skein of the same color, or when there is a knot in your yarn that needs to be removed. The wet felt join is my favorite join to use in these situations, as it has very little effect on the final look of the project, and is highly unlikely to come undone. Plus, no ends to weave it!
