Hand Dying Taster Workshop


SKU: N/A Category:


Our Yarn Shop Day for 2022 is focusing on the process of how yarn goes from the Sheep to the Shop and we’ll be running a hand dying taster workshops throughout the day, whereby you can dye your own sock yarn and take it away to enjoy making it up at home!

We’ll be using Acid Dyes to dye the yarn which can stain hands and clothing and we will be wearing gloves and aprons to protect clothing and hands.  As it will be held outside then we will not need to wear masks to protect from the fine particles of the acid dyes.

Included in the workshop is:

  1. Ball of undyed sock yarn
  2. Use of acid dyes to create your own colour way
  3. Pair of sock needles
  4. Sock pattern to make your own socks

Workshops are limited to 5 people on each session and each session will last for approx. 1 hour.  You will be able to take away your sock yarn after it has been set, but you will need to let it dry naturally at home before it can be used.

This workshop is a taster session which will allow you to enjoy the process of hand dying your own yarn, but you can also stay in our marquee and learn a little more about making natural dyes from plants and finding out more about the interesting colours they create.
