Spring Retreat - Dyeing

click to enlarge

Saturday, several guild members met at the Frank B. Wise Business Plaza in Fort Washakie for a morning class on dyeing wool with Kool-aid and food coloring. Briana Franks, the instructor, was assisted by Sandy Watkins. They prepared the small hanks of yarn and the supplies for the class of ten individuals and allowed the members to experiment and play with the colors.

Members experimented with several methods of dyeing: hand-painting, immersion, and dip-dyeing.

The dyed wool was steamed in crock pots, and some were finished in the microwave.
