"Take control of your colors!" - that is exactly what Hand Dyeing Yarn and Fleece will help you do. Many knitters have found themselves searching amongst endless hanks of yarn stacked in local shops only to think "it's just not the right color." We search high and low - digging through baskets and discount bins - for that perfect skein in the perfect shade to make the perfect gift. Although the commercial choices are extensive - sometimes even overwhelming, there are times when we just can't find it.
If you have an interest in dyeing or have dabbled a bit and want some more "recipies," add Hand Dyeing Yarn and Fleece to your bookshelf now! But beware, the steps are easy to follow, the photographs are enticing... and the creative process is most certainly addicting! Happy Dyeing!
About the Author: Gail Callahan discovered weaving in the 1990's, leading her to a small business called The Kangaroo Weaver. A few years later, she began dyeing for personal use. The following year, Valley Yarns asked her to dye yarns exclusive to WEBS, America's Yarn Store, in Northampton, Massachusetts. She now teaches dyeing at WEBS, and continues to dye for them as well as for her own business, The Kangaroo Dyer.
