#91 Yarn Dying Basics

Ever wonder how to dye yarn?

My first experience dying yarn wasn’t exactly a success but through that experience I learned that there are crucial steps to the process. Dying yarn can be a great Sunday funday project if your hands need a break from your current WIP. Who knows, it may even become a new hobby for you!

Today’s Guest

I’m thrilled to chat with Ali of Explorer Knits this week on the podcast! It’s certainly a conversation I wish I had (or heard) before I tried dying my first hank of yarn. You’ll hear about that interesting experience too! Ali runs through it all from what yarns to experiment with first, the different dyes and which you should use as a beginner and then she walks us through the entire dying process. It’s much easier than you might think!
