16.04.25 : hand dyed hemp yarns

this maiden voyage in hand dyeing yarn was done with these dreamy italian made 100% hemp yarns in three weights – worsted, dk and sport… was quite the project and learning curve – first winding them on a knitty-noddy, then hand dyeing, setting and rinsing rinsing rinsing well… the finishing touch was a wrapper made of wildflower seed paper labelling each one of a kind color – cherry pie, citrine, seaweed, sky, violet and ultra violet… check out a video compilation making these, snagged from the live webcam – http://xusah.net/zine/mu-hq-yarn-dyeing.mp4
