I've been spinning and processing my own woll for a few years now but I was nervous to try dyeing. I've used 3 different colors now and it couldnt be easier! Love the colors and how quick it is. Will definetely be getting more!
This was so easy to use! I never planned on dying my own yarn because I thought it would be too difficult. Now I will definitely be doing more! The color was also very beautiful. One of the dye packs I choose was "Bark". It is a rich dark chocolate brown. I did let it soak longer per the instructions. I'm very happy with the results!
I was blown away by how easy it was to achieve consistent and rich colors with the tincture dye packs, even though this was my first experience dyeing yarn! I’m hooked on dyeing my own yarn now and will be ordering more dye packs in the future!
A few years ago I bought some yarn that I wanted to try dying, but it seemed time consuming and messy, so I set it aside. Then I found your tinctures and it looked so easy, so I tried them. I couldn’t be happier! It was easy, and I got beautiful, vibrant colors. This is the way to go for small projects.
I used the first Deep Water tincture pack to dye 100gms of Romney/mohair handspun yarn using the dye jar technique as recommended. Beautiful color! The green struck first and after 30+ min there was some blue dye still in the water. I took the yarn out, re-heated the dye water, and popped another 40gm skein in. The initial skeins were a deep slightly bluish green and the last was a medium turquoise blue. For the 2nd dye pack, I heated a larger volume of water and put it in a pre-heated slow cooker. Dyed 200gms of handspun Rambouillet yarn and kept the dye bath on low heat in the slow cooker for an hour. All the dye was taken up by the yarn and the color was a more muted (because of doubling the qty of fiber used) but really beautiful greenish blue. The related colors/shades all work well together - can't wait to weave them up! Guessing that keeping heat on the dye bath for the longer time helped the slower to strike blue get into the fiber equally with the green.
Because I wanted to dye three skeins of different natural colors of Navajo-Churro yarn together to see what would happen, and because I wanted slightly paler colors than Blood Orange would normally give, I deviated from the standard procedure. Dye sets for 2 skeins, water for 3 skeins, all in one large stainless steel pot. There was little difference between the white and the light tan yarns, but the light gray gave a noticeably darker ruby color. I'm so pleased with the results. Lacking a dye facility and being afraid to dye outdoors for wildfire reasons, I love the freedom to dye in the kitchen that these dyes permit.
After spending the day before mordanting and dyeing with natural dyes (which I love), it was a pleasure to have such an easy dye day. And the colors are gorgeous. Your dyes filled in a few missing colors. Very pleased with the outcome. And I love your packaging. Charming.
You all rock! Not only are the dyes great, but your service and responsiveness was super! You saved my project, despite the USPS. My yarn is exactly as I wanted and I promise to send a o completed project picture when I am done. Thanks again!
I love the color variety and ease of these dye tinctures. The color looks great on all of my fiber varieties, and the citric acid is a pleasant alternative to the acidic scent of vinegar. I like the solid- semi-solid results I get which add interest and texture to my knitting projects.
These wool tincture packs are easy to use and fun! It makes dying a lot easier and takes out a lot of the guess work and mess. I have had a lot of fun using these packs. I wouldn't hesitate to buy more!!!
This has to be the easiest way to dye fiber ever. My home is not set up to do fiber dyeing the traditional way. This approach is safe, so easy and can be done in less than an hour, start to finish. And the colors are perfect. This is not my first or second purchase. I’ll definitely be back for more.
I’ve used Abundant Earth Fibers dyes to dye a couple of pounds of fiber I had purchased over the years. It was all natural fiber…beige and white, mostly, Some of the hanks were white merino and silk. Dyeing fiber used to be a big deal with lots of potential mess involved. Not with this approach. All the dyeing takes place in a glass liter jar with hot water, dye tea bag, and tea bag of citric acid. And the colors are perfect. When I dump out the water, it is just a out clear. A quick rinse and I’m done. It’s absolutely the best method ever. Oh and great colors too.
