Summer School - Sock blanks!

DT Craft and Design - hand dyed sock blank

Today was an expanse of painting, stippling, sponging spraying and dipping.

Everyone was given one of our beautiful undyed Bluefaced Leicester/nylon sock blanks – 100g of two-stranded knitted fabric – designed for dyeing and unravelling to knit a matching pair of socks!

The group created an amazing series of pieces – interpreting their colour inspiration images to produce exciting effects. I can’t wait to see how they knit up!

If you would like to try your hand at this fun technique, you can buy our sock blanks here. Blanks can be dyed with our fibre reactive (mx) dyes, acid dyes, natural dyes or Kool Aid.

Spread the love with a share!
