Dying your own yarn can be so much fun! DIY your very own color palette for your next project or experiment with zany hand painted colorways for the perfect pair of socks that are just so you! We have yarn perfect for dying, kits and a large range of books tailored for dyers of all skill levels.
If you’re not sure what you need to get started, our Greener Shades Beginner Yarn Dyeing Kit is the perfect place to begin. Three different yarns (so you can see which you like best!), nine different colors along with mordant to help set the dye and a copy of Hand Dyeing Yarn and Fleece will have you ready to dye in no time. If you’d like to see a staff project using Greener Shades dye, Heidi wrote a lovely little blog post about her First Adventure in Dyeing here!
Speaking of dyeable yarns, almost all of our yarn lines have dyeable Bare hanks available to play around with (including a wicked discount on 20 packs of yarn, available here). From Glimmer‘s sparkly Stellina (perfect for socks and shawls!) to our bestselling Wool of the Andes (ideal for hard-wearing sweaters and accessories) we’ve got a huge range to choose from.
My personal favorite is our Indigo Dye Kit. I’ve dyed everything from clothing and linens to handknits with these kits over the years and loved the results!
