Books - General Dyeing

The Yarn Lover's Guide to Dyeing - beautiful color and simple knits
by Linda la Belle

Now you can create gorgeous, unique, handpainted yarns in your very own kitchen. In this practical guide to dyeing yarn at home, you'll learn simple techniques for creating beautiful, colourful yarns - and pick up some new patterns to highlight your new hues along the way. You'll learn a variety of hand-dyeing processes, including faux ikat, used to create a fun tie-dyed effect; quick stovetop techniques that yield tons of colour; space dyeing, which uses several colours to create a pattern; a way to dye already knitted pieces; and trouble-free methods for immersion and handpainting. There's also info on different types of dye and interviews and advice from seven professional hand dyers! Once you're finished, show off your rich and quirky new hues with 20 original knit and crochet patterns. Designs are easy yet sophisticated and include everything from ponchos to scarves and hats to arm warmers. You'll find clear instructions, entertaining projects and plenty of how-to tips.

Debbie says: "A good general book covering a range of dyes and techniques, suitable for beginner dyers but with interesting techniques for more experienced dyers too. Interviews with seven professional dyers and 20 projects will give you lots to read and enjoy".
