Dyeing your own yarn or fiber offers the same satisfaction as making your own homemade soup. You know exactly what goes in it, you can tweak the ingredients to get exactly what you want, you can make endless variations from just a few basic ingredients. Plus, it's fun! And you can do it right in your own kitchen!

Deb Menz knows the process inside out, and she is a master of making color alchemy attainable for anyone. All you need is some wool, silk, or other protein fiber and a few basic dye powders to mix and match as you please.

In this cheerful session, Deb talks about:

  • Equipment and safety
  • Choosing basic dyes that are safe and easy to use
  • Making stock solutions to keep handy for color mixing
  • Simple (really simple!) math for creating repeatable colors if you want to
  • Color mixing - the sky's the limit.

After that, it's all fun! Deep-water and low-water dyeing, dip dyeing, resist dyeing, ombrés, self-striping yarns, squirting, injecting, dribbling - and overdyeing if you don't like what you get the first time. Along the way, you will pick up useful hints on color theory so you can get just the effects you want.

New to Dying and Dying to Try it
I found the video to be useful and entertaining. I was a little afraid of trying my hand at dying. Fear no more! I have ordered my first set of dye and cannot wait to get them. I have been spinning like crazy to have as much fiber ready to dye as possible.

Terrific resource.

One of the best
A brilliant video for newbee and experienced yarn dyers. Everything is explained well. Highly recommended Review by Desiree (Posted on 6/6/2014)
great
Dyeing in the Kitchen with Deb Menz was full of so much information
about home dyeing that I can hardly wait to get started. I've played with wool dyeing
but her DVD gave me the information I need to do a
better job.

Dyeing in the kitchen
I like this video. It gives a lot of information about many different ways to add the color to produce different effects. You really get the urge to immediately begin experimenting yourself. Review by Marianne (Posted on 10/23/2013)
Clear, Consice, Creative
Ms. Menz provides a well organized and beautifully photographer introduction to a variety of dye techniques. She starts with the basics, doesn't skip steps and as importantly doesn't talk down to the viewer. I have already watched the dvd three times and will watch it again.
