I mentioned in my last post that I’d been dyeing cellulose fibres recently. I’ve mostly stuck to staple fibres like the viscose I showed last week, and bamboo. These are the greens, blues, purples, silver and black shades of bamboo I did:
And here are the yellows, browns and reds bamboo staple:
I tried a couple of shades of Rose fibre top (the photos of these were blurred) and they turned out well so I did some bamboo tops:
They came out really nice, so I used up the last of the blue and purple dyes on some viscose top:
And since I’d already made a mess in the kitchen and still had the table out, I started dyeing with acid dyes. Only these silk carrier rods were dry enough to photograph:

Yay for a dyeing binge! You were on a roll, madam 😀
Ha 🙂 I just kept getting new fibres out until the dye had all been used!
You’re lucky we’re not neighbours or I’d stalk your dyeing fun! 😃
Thanks, Karen 🙂
Which dyes do you prefer for cellulose?
I’ve only used the Procion dye on the cellulose fibres, I don’t know if it’s any specific brand, I got them off ebay and they came in plastic bags.
Wow, you’re going dye crazy! 🙂 They are all beautiful and I look forward to seeing what you make with all these gorgeous colors.
Thanks, Ruth 🙂
I’ll be taking most of them to makefest at MOSI, but I’ll definitely try any I bring back.
Looks like you had a fun time. They all turned out great.
Thanks, Ann 🙂
Beautiful rich colors, now you’re ready for anything! They’ll be some lucky people at MOSI.
Thanks, Marilyn 🙂
