Swatching Acid Dye Powders on Yarn

I love to crudely swatch acid dye powders on yarn to quickly get a feeling for the relative intensities and hues of different colors.  

Why? Acid dyes come in a wide range of colors and potency, from premixed pastels to super pigmented dark colors.  Almost all of the colors can be very intense when you dye directly with the dry powder - and therefore look very different from how they might look at a 1% DOS on a swatch card.  (DOS = grams of dye / 100 g of fiber.  A 1% DOS is 1 gram dye / 100 g yarn.)  

This quick method of swatching lets me see if colors might break with speckling and how different colors within one family compare to one another.  I've included a lot of these "swatch cards" in my videos, but I wanted to share these images as an easy reference since I look at the again and again.  The conditions vary in each example so it is best to compare colors within one image, but hopefully this can give you a rough feel of what you can get with different colors. 

I am going to add captions with all of the dye names below each of the images so you can easily search this page for the color you want to see. You will find all 40 Jacquard Acid Dye colors and most of the Dharma Acid Dye Collection. The video featuring the swatch is linked below each image so you can hear more about the colors and see how the final yarn from the swatch photo turned out! If I made the swatches in a livestream I linked to the recap so you can see the finished yarn and a summary of the project.

  5. Very helpful. How environmentally friendly are Dharma and Jacquard Acid Dyes? I am wondering about disposing of the water bath after all the dye is in the wool. I live in a place where disposing of the after dye water content matters. Thanks for your input.
