Egg dyes on yarn:

  • The yarn is an 8/2's ~800 ypp mohair, originally a sad taupe color.
  • The dyes are the left over food dyes from the eggs.
  • The finished yarn is "to die (dye?) for!!"

Each skein is about 200 yds. I'll use these as a substitute for the rug wool in Jason Collingwood's workshop in two weeks.

    WOW---those colors are georgous !!
    What egg dyes did you use?

  2. Wow! Those are beautiful! Interesting, too, how the dyes translate from egg to wool.

  3. These are stunning! Can you tell us more about the process you used to dye the yarn?

    I can't wait to see what you create in Jason's class.

  4. Yummy! Absolute eye candy! Easter egg dyes are so much fun, aren't they.

  5. The yarn is beautiful! Who knew that eggs dyes would give such vibrant colours on yarn!

  6. You're taking Jason's class?!
    I've been tossing taking his class in May, it's a long drive and can't make up my mind about the time and money. Leaning that direction more with each day, especially as I just started the process of getting the loom ready for my first shaft-switching rug.

    What warp will you use?
