In the Dye Studio: Making Lye
Posted by Kristine Vejar on September 16, 2013 1 Comment
There are many exciting things happening in the dye studio at the moment.
We made 60 gallons of lye this week! This will be used to create our first fermented indigo vat. More details coming very soon!
Going through photos for this blog post, I remembered - I finished a sweater this week! Francis, by Olga. It is made out of Shibui Heichi - a 100% silk yarn that we carry here in the shop. I love it! One more piece to add to my handmade wardrobe. 3 cheers for Seam Allowance! And 3 cheers for Olga's great sense of style!
Also, I participated in an interview on the Fringe Association blog this week. Karen, the founder of Fringe Association, always asks the big questions - like what tools I use and what my work space looks like - the important things in life! There's only a couple more days left to sign-up for the Pro-Verbial Yarn, Fiber, and Shawl club. This is a great way to get your hands on exclusive naturally dyed colorways - paired with fabulous shawl designs.
Hope you are having a great week! Kristine
