Sneak Peek

I can’t explain it…dyeing fibre with Botanicals is amazing!

This week I dyed some Superwash merino/bamboo/nylon combed top with an extract called cochineal. I purchased a kit from Miawa that contained a variety of extracts; they are located just across the Strait of Georgia from me. I used modifiers to obtain different colours. The light pink was from using ammonia; it’s my favorite! I also used citric acid to get the beautiful orange colour.


Follow along with me as I use more extracts, plants, vegetables, and fruit to dye assorted fibres.

I teach people how to use a support spindle and how to dye fibre with plants from my garden.
