Techniques & Tips to Make Custom Hand-Dyed Yarns by Felicia Lo (Author)


Book Description

"Unapologetic" is how Felicia Lo describes her obsession with colour and craft. In Dyeing to Spin & Knit, Felicia, founder and creative director of SweetGeorgia Yarns and highly-sought after lecturer, provides clear and accessible guidance for creating gorgeous hand-dyed yarns and spinning fibres and an understanding of how dyeing affects knitted yarn and handspun yarn. Fibre artists will learn the fundamentals of how colour works, how to combine and coordinate colours, and how to control the results when dyeing wool and silk yarn and fibres. Spinners will learn how to subdue intense and bright colourways or prevent muddiness in handspun. Knitters will gain the knowledge to avoid or maximise the effects of pooling. And finally, this book includes 10 patterns that use hand-dyed and handspun yarns and fibres to their most exciting advantage in knitting projects.
