February 2012 Tutorial – Indigo Dyeing

Jan showed us the intricacies of indigo dyeing.  We brought along fibre, handspun yarn, silk, scarves, cotton fabric to dye.  It was a great day, and it was terrific to see the different shades of indigo depending on how long pieces were in the bath, or whether the fibre went in at the beginning of the bath when the dye was stronger, in comparison to the fibre that went into the bath at the very end of the day.
