This course will teach you to hand paint/dye your own yarn! Using weak acid dyes you will learn basic colour and dye theory first. Then, you'll be set loose with your own yarn and dyes to start to create a special yarn designed by you. We will also work on hand-painting a sock blank and if you're interested we can try some speckles and stencils to create a yarn that will make a matching pair of socks. You can let your inner colour crazy self out as there will be small supply of brights and fun colours to play with too. Come dye with 3dogknits and create your own style of yarn while learning about colours, dyes, and the dye process.
