More Dyeing

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:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI 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:

    1. Ha 🙂 I just kept getting new fibres out until the dye had all been used!

    1. 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.

  1. Wow, you’re going dye crazy! 🙂 They are all beautiful and I look forward to seeing what you make with all these gorgeous colors.

    1. Thanks, Ruth 🙂
      I’ll be taking most of them to makefest at MOSI, but I’ll definitely try any I bring back.

  2. Beautiful rich colors, now you’re ready for anything! They’ll be some lucky people at MOSI.
