And just in time. I have been dyeing up a new batch of yarns & clothing for my next sale date this weekend. On June 30th I will be back at Lettuce Knit for Pedestrian Sunday, which also coincides with Pride Week and the parade in Toronto.
For my next batch of dyes I chose the Pride Flag colours. Obvious choice of course! I found a cute cotton shirt to upcycle and it will probably be too hot to wear it all day. Its still all tied up and I am being very good not opening it up yet. Scarves on the other hand, I can’t keep my hands off. I dyed up 4 shirts and a bunch of warps & wefts, scarves and a tea towel.
The warps are all 160 epi 100% silk. Thess are the mill end silks I bought from the carpet mfg place. There is one scarf per warp and about 135″ in length for waste and a sample. I will start with a twill tie up and some of the scarves I want to do in tabby just to see how the dyeing came out. Other scarves, I want to use to see what patterns work well and what do not.
Multi Striped. I tried to put them in randomly, with as many colour changes as possible.
Purple Green & Blue colour combination.
2 Rainbow warps.
Orange, red & grey combination.
I opened a couple of dyed pieces.
100% hemp tea towel.
Silk & hemp scarf.
