Kettle Dyed Yarn

The best illustration of the variation 
What is so great about kettle dyed yarn?  You get some subtle variations of color through a single pot application.  I've learned that if you pre-soak your yarn, you are much more likely to end up with a uniform color, but when you add it dry to the dyebath you can get some subtle (or sometimes not so subtle) variations of color.   Watch the video to find out more!

    1. I have not tried ice dyeing before, but that sounds like a great thing to try! I don't have as much time for dyeing with a 10 month old running (well speed crawling) around, but I will definitely add this to my list of ideas. Thanks!
