Dye Day With Wedgewood Fibers



Are you dye curious? Create a one of kind colorway by dying yarn with Emily Myers of Wedgewood Fibers!  Emily will guide you through this fun process with some of the special techniques she uses when dying her own line of beautiful yarns. Bring a friend along and dye together!

For this workshop, you will have your choice of either Aran weight (100% Blue Faced Leicester, 181 yds), DK weight (100% Superwash Merino, 238 yds) or fingering weight (80% Superwash Merino, 20% Nylon, 437 yds) yarn, and either one or two skeins in the same pot per session. Please plan on arriving to the shop 30 minutes before your timeslot so you can get some ideas for the direction you'd like to go. We will have samples galore! Once you get a feel for the dye style options we suggest keeping an open mind and allowing yourself to play... it's so much fun to see how you can make the colors morph and change!

After you have completed dying your yarn Emily will take it home for it's final wash and dry, then will deliver it back to Acorn Street Shop within two weeks for you to pick up. Voila, you will then have a very special one-of-a-kind skein (or two) of yarn named after you!

PRICING PER DYE POT

  • $35 includes - $20 for one dye pot and $15 for one skein of yarn.
  • $50 includes - $20 for one dye pot and $30 for two skeins of yarn.
