Want to create a yarn as unique as you are? Would you like to learn how to dye your own yarn without having to worry about the investment and the mess? Well, today, Austin-based Hand Dyer, Doug Upchurch of White Bear Fibers, will be leading a Dye Your Own Workshop at The Tinsmith's Wife!
No Experience Required!
This 2-hour workshop will provide you with the training, coaching, and materials to dye up to two skeins of yarn. We have two sessions scheduled - a morning session from 10:30 - 12:30 and an afternoon session that will run from 1:30 - 3:30 pm!
Cost $30 for the class (does not include yarn) If you want to dye more than the two skeins, there is an additional $5 charge per skein. There is a maximum of 4 skeins per person per session.
The undyed yarn is available for purchase in advance from The Tinsmith's Wife. It is important that you have choose your yarn weight/type at the time of registration as the yarn needs to be soaked ahead of time to maximize your time spent on the dying process. There are three options/weights of undyed yarn to chose from:
Northern Sock: 100% Superwash BFL 4-Ply Sock Yarn, 438 yds, $17
Lagniappe DK: 80% Superwash Merino, 10% Cashmere, 10% Nylon, 231 yds, $17
Northern Silk Sock: 50% Superwash BFL, 50% Silk, 438 yds, $24
Doug has also done a great job setting up a new web form for you to complete so that we have a record of what yarns you want. http://www.whitebearfibers.com/dye-your-own-yarn-tsw/

This is a great opportunity to play with color and fiber and learn from one of our own local Indie Dyers!
