The Dye Kit for Knitters is perfect for the knitter in your life who is interested in natural dyeing - or the natural dyer in your life who is interested in knitting! Following the instructions in The Modern Natural Dyer, you will dye yarn for three projects: a hat, shawl, and cowl. Then you get to knit the yarn you've dyed into a finished object which you can wear proudly.

These are the projects included:
Northwoods Hat
Sandstone Shawl 
Confetti Cowl

By working on these projects you will learn:
+ the difference between fiber types
+ to naturally dye protein-based and cellulose-based fibers
+ to plan for projects
+ to work efficiently and effectively 
+ to combine natural dyeing extracts to create a wide-range of color
+ to learn how fibers within the same type absorb color
+ to create patterns using shibori
+ and more!
