In this great book, self-taught dyer Gail Callahan will show you simple techniques for dyeing yarn and roving that use standard kitchen equipment. Dyeing can be done in a microwave oven, a sturdy stovetop kettle, a crockpot, a traditional oven, or even an electric frying pan. Callahan covers singlecolor methods, self-striping and multicolored yarns with dip-dyeing, tie-dyeing hand-painting, and other inventive techniques. She provides detailed advice on color theory and types of dyes, including food colors and other "grocery store" dyes as well as the professional grade Acid Dyes. This book is great for beginning dyers. Soon you will be dyeing your own Indie Artisan colorways for knitting, crocheting, rug hooking, spinning, and weaving.

7.75" x 9.25", hard cover, color photos, 168 pages.

I got this book from the library. It is hands down the best book on dyeing that I have found. Half the book is knitting patterns though.

About Tiered Discount Levels

You can combine cotton and rayon clothing & accessories to get the greatest discounts. Your discount is figured on the total number of cotton and rayon items we ship, not how many of each type, style or size. Mix and match them to get the best discount.

Example: adding 4 each of 3 different T-shirts in any sizes will give you the 12+ price on all 12 shirts.
