Dyeing Session

I have done a little bit of thread dyeing previously, but this time, I experimented with commercial embroidery floss, as well as cotton and even tried some that had metallic thread running through it.

I started with mostly whites, but as you can see in this photo of the thread soaking, I did use a couple of skeins that already had colour


here they are, wrapped and "batching"


I am quite pleased with the results. 


just a little sparkle

Beautiful. How did you get the sparkle? Was the sparkle added by you or was it already in the thread?

WOW! Those are skeins of embroidery floss??! You've transformed them! Would love it if you could share the process sometime.

AND . . .Happy Birthday To You! (a little early -- but I think you can celebrate your birthday all year long, if you want to . . .)
