Dying cotton yarn
I have seen a video on dying cotton yarn and wanted to try it.
I got some Sugars and Cream white yarn.
I had some left over dye from dying t-shirts with my girls.
So I used those colors. Red, black and green.
I unwound it and and laid it on plastic wrap and a pan.
Just in-case the dye leaked through.
I then started to adding the dye. I did not have enough
to cover it all. But I did want some white parts anyways.
After I got it all on. I then pushed down on it. To make sure it
was all the way through out the whole part I wanted.
Then I covered it up for 3 hours and let it soak in.
I did not want really dark colors. So I did not do it as long
as I would with my t-shirts.
Then I rinsed it out till there was no dye coming out and hung it up
to air dry.
I then used my machine to wind it all up into a ball again.
When I was done. I threw it into a laundry bag and washed it.
Then threw it into the dryer.
I have started to make wash cloths out of this pretty yarn.
I love the way it turned out and can't wait to do it again
in the near future.
If you have any questions please feel free to ask.
