Item details

Karen Kahle's perfect companion to the Dusty Dye Book, the Dusty Dye Book swatch set of 12 colors and 26 tints is a wonderful helper when it comes to picking the perfect color for your projects. Neat and portable, take them with you to find other colors to go with your hand dyed wools.

For a long while I struggled to create formulas for muted antique light values, always coming up with color that were too bright or glowing. Then I hit upon using 3 subtle dye colors, intermixing them to get a whole range of useful light colors that looked lovely dyed over light solid, textured, and patterned wool fabrics and yarns. These are the colors that I use all the time, and they are a part of every rug that I hook.

The Dusty Dye Book is shown in the last photo, and is available in another listing in my etsy shop.

I have had Karen's Dusty Dye Book or a few years and have used the recipes, but decided to treat myself to the swatches. Love them!
