Item details

Walnut Farm Design's Beginner's Yarn Dyeing Kit is an easy way to jump into dyeing your own yarn! This kit gives you all the information you need to begin. It really is easy and fun and it is really special to knit or crochet with yarn that you dyed yourself!

The instructions included in the kit tell you how to dye your own multi-colored colorways, handpaint and dip dye and how to heat set them. It also tells you how to easily dye solid colors.

Cushing's professional dyes are great for all animal fibers and can be used to dye your own finished yarns, roving, silk hankies, or wool for rughooking as well. I really enjoy the ease of using Cushing's acid dyes.

I try to make the instructions easy to understand and easy to follow, and it's really not difficult.

Included in the kit:

- four Cushing's professional acid dye packets (1/3 oz packet each) (each packet dyes
approx. 1 lb fiber)

- three skeins of your choice of:
-400yds Fingering weight 100% Superwash Merino yarn
-410yds Fingering 90% SWMerino/Nylon 8 ply yarn
-220yds Worsted weight 100% Superwash Merino yarn

- instruction sheets on how to dye and heat set your fiber

Dye color choices available are:

-Aqualon Pink
-Old Rose
-Rose Pink
-Wild Rose
-American Beauty (bright pink)
-Navy Blue
-Aqualon Blue
-Robin's Egg Blue
-Turquoise Blue
-Sky Blue
-Copenhagen Blue
-Nile Green
-Jade Green
-Myrtle Green
-Hunter Green
-Dark Green
-Silver Gray Green
-Light Brown
-Brown Rust
-Silver Gray
-Dark Gray

When you order, please include a note with your 4 color choices of dye for your kit, and which weight of yarn that you would like.

Cushing's Professional Acid Dyes are chemical dyes and any pots, pans, utensils, or microwaves should be for dyeing only and not be used for food. You can heat set in ovens, however, due to the way they heat versus microwaves.

Stop wondering about how to dye your own fiber, and just start! I'm sure you'll have fun and love the results, because you did it yourself!

I bought this for my sister for her birthday. She loves the dye colors Anita helped me pick out and she's super excited to get started! I can't wait to see what she makes with the yarn. Anita is an absolute delight. Thank you!

Absolutely wonderful! I've never dyed yarn before so this was a great way to try it out and see if I like it. the results were amazing! The only comment is that the instructions were very broad (which is great if you sort of know what you want to do/ have some previous knowledge) but for someone totally new, it took some research, but that wasnt too hard to do. Overall, highly recommend. :)
