Dive into Dyeing with ChemKnits & KnitCrate! (NEW Learn to Dye Subscription Course!)

I am thrilled to share that I teamed up with KnitCrate & Dyer Supplier to create 15 videos for their new learn to dye course: Dive into Dyeing! Last summer, I filmed 15 videos to accompany this three month subscription to help you get started on your yarn dyeing journey.  

I am an affiliate marketer with KnitCrate and Dyer Supplier which means I earn commissions on sales made through my links.  All of the links and coupon codes to both companies in this blog post are affiliate links/codes.


Dive into Dyeing is a 3-month subscription kit designed to introduce you to hand dyeing yarn with acid dyes and highlights 3 techniques (semi-solid, variegated, and speckles).  Each month you will receive 200 g of bare yarn, 3 - 1/2 oz jars of Jacquard acid dyes, gloves, a booklet with step by step instructions, and some other extras that will be helpful in your dyeing journey.  I filmed 15 videos to accompany this subscription to help you get set up with tools & equipment, safety tips, and then how to begin your yarn dyeing journey.  


What is included in the Dive into Dyeing Subscription?

Each month's Dive into Dyeing box will include 2 - 100 g skeins of yarn, 3 - 1/2 ounce jars of Jacquard acid dyes, 2 gloves, 2 zip ties, a booklet with step-by-step instructions, and some extras.  The step by step instructions are fantastic - KnitCrate pulled images from the videos I created and included color coded explanations of formulas so you can keep track of your dyeing recipes.  

What are the extras?  Box 1 will include citric acid, Box 2 will include some squeeze bottles and wooden stirrers, and Box 3 will also include some stirrers.  


What else do I need to start dyeing yarn? What is not included in the Dive into Dyeing Subscription? 

The Dive into Dyeing subscription does NOT include Respirator masks / Dust masks, Safety glasses, pots/pans/steamers, measuring spoons, digital scales.  

Personal safety is really important.  I recommend that you get a N95 or respirator mask with P100 filters for when you are dealing with dry dye powder.  I also wear protective safety goggles and gloves.  

Make sure that all of the tools and equipment you plan to use for yarn dyeing are dedicated for dye and won't be used for the preparation of food.  Here are some of my favorite dedicate dye tools for dyeing yarn. 


How much is the Dive into Dyeing Subscription? 

Dive into Dyeing is $39.99/month plus the cost of shipping. Starting April 1, 2021, the Dive into Dyeing Subscription will be $39.99 plus ($7.95 S&H Domestic or $11.95 S&H International)  As of  New KnitCrate customers can save 20% off the first month with the coupon code "chemknits20"

When the kit launched, shipping was included in the cost, as it was with all KnitCrate Subscriptions. I became aware of this price increase in an email KntiCrate sent 3/17/21 notifying customers of price increases across the board.  

Can I cancel after the first month? 

Yes.  I believe that if you sign up again a few months later the system should know you have already received lesson 1 and start you back up with lesson 2.  Please reach out to KnitCrate directly to confirm.  


What is covered in the videos?

  • Dyeing Tools and Equipment
  • Safety tips for dyeing yarn at home
  • How to make acid dye stock solutions
  • Level 1 (goes with the Month 1 box) - How to dye Semi-solid yarn
  • Level 2 (goes with the Month 2 box) - How to dye variegated yarn on the countertop
  • Level 3 (goes with the Month 3 box) - How to dye speckled yarn low immersion 
There are also some bonus videos that will demonstrate some other fun ways you can combine color and yarn:
  • Dyeing a yarn cake for a fun gradient
  • Dyeing a 2-color gradient with connected miniskeins
  • Dyeing self striping yarn
  • Dyeing variegated and speckled yarn low immersion
  • Dyeing "watercolor" yarn
  • Solar dyeing yarn in mason jars
  • Ice dyeing yarn
Finally, there are two videos that feature food coloring.  Food coloring works very similar to acid dyes so a lot of the above videos will also work with food coloring.  
  • Dyeing yarn with KoolAid in the microwave
  • Dyeing yarn with KoolAid in a crock pot

Want to watch the videos to see if yarn dyeing is for you?  You can!  The videos I created for KnitCrate are available to the public for free.  I created a Dive into Dyeing playlist that I will share on my channel or you can watch all 15 videos below: 




Are the included gloves laytex-free? 

Yes!  The gloves are vinyl laytex-free and powder-free.  

Can we watch you unbox the Dive into Dyeing Subscription? 

Yes!  I will unbox the first level on Friday 8/28 at 1 PM EST on the ChemKnits Tutorials YouTube Channel.  You can watch the replay below:

  2. Is an N95 mask ok to use to start dyeing. I just purchased a small starter yarn painting kit from pro chemical and dye. I haven't tried dyeing yet but can't wait to start. The N95 mask was one that I could get right now and I figured i would mix outside.

    1. I started with a N95. I think this is fine for occasional dyeing but if you want to dye a lot I recommend upgrading to a rubber respirator since it is easier to have a better fit.
