*Kit includes one undyed sock blank. Rainbow dyed sock blank is pictured only for inspiration.*
You get to choose either a single or double knit sock blank, and whether you would like 3 or 4 dyes with your kit. The double strand blank is 2 strands of 75/25 SWMerino/Nylon sock yarn knit together, so that you can unravel them and knit two identical socks.
The single and double blanks, both are 463 yds of 75/25 Superwash Merino/Nylon and are 100 grams. You get to choose which you'd like. In my experience, I find the double blanks easier to dye because the double knit makes them more absorbent. Unless you put something absorbent under the single blanks, the dye has a little more tendency to run underneath the blank while you are dyeing it and you end up with dye where you don't want it.
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 Cushing's professional dyes in this kit are great for all animal fibers and protein fibers. I really enjoy the ease of using Cushing's acid dyes.
I try to make the instructions easy to understand along with pictures, and it really is easy and fun.
Included in the kit:
-one undyed sock blank, either single or double knit
- three Cushing's professional acid dye packets (1/3 oz packet each) (each packet dyes approx. 1 lb fiber)
- instruction sheets on how to dye and heat set your blank
-foam brushes to apply dyes
Any of the Cushing's dyes on the chart are available, so just let me know the names of your selections in the comments when you order.
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 looking at those gorgeous gradient and self-striping yarns, and try dyeing some yourself!
This sock blank took the provided dyes nicely. I can't wait to work it up! The shop sent DETAILED printed instructions on the proper way to use the dyes, which were very helpful. Thank you.
