Kitchen Dyeing Kit

 In this kit, you get Tanis Gray's new video, which teaches you how to dye yarn with everyday kitchen ingredients - a simple and affordable way to have fun, use your creativity, and make custom colorways. Also in the kit is one skein of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock yarn.

This skein is special - it is the undyed base yarn that Lorna's uses for their own amazing hand dyed colorways. The skein comes undyed with extra ties binding it, which help keep the strands in order when you unbraid the skein and dye it. While dyeing, the skein gets wet and the potential for tangling is higher, but these extra ties help control that problem. Once you've dyed and dried the yarn, you can remove the extra ties and rebraid the yarn into skein form. Lastly, this skein comes with a blank label that has not yet been attached to the skein. Once your yarn is dyed and dried and rebraided, you can attach the label, if you're not knitting with the yarn right away. And Lorna's has made the label extra special, by leaving it blank in the color section so you can fill in your own info! Make up a color name or list the ingredients you used to dye the yarn.
