I dye up hemp yarns with procion MX dyes. This batch is my second. I used a ton of techniques, and found how I like my back room set up for dyeing. I think this yarn will pool, but I tried to ensure that some colours will and some colours will not.
Mostly I want to make face cloths from the yarns, so the colour repeats are very short. I have a fixed skein winder, that I used to wrap the yarns up in the first place. It matches my swift in size. Eventually I will need to get both in a larger format to easier wrap up the yarns for dyeing.
One side of a drying skein.
All wrapped up and skeined.
I brought this yarn with me while traveling, and I’m in the middle of making a shawl first, then face cloths.
And some close ups.
My biggest frustration has been that I can’t duplicate the dyeing I do from batch to batch. But I feel that I am coming to terms with that. We’ll see how I really feel after the next batch.
