Yes, You CAN Dye Like That!: Acid Dye Excitement
Try the basics of acid dying with easily accessible tools and supplies. Discover how acid dyes work, then create your own color blends and apply them on wool fiber or silk scarves to create a range of beautiful colors.* Enjoy the option to dye more fiber or scarves provided by the Foldout Cat, or to dye small 100-percent animal-fiber items they bring from home, each for an additional fee.** If you like, sign up for Sunday morning’s weaving session and add your hand-dyed excitement to your creation!
* Students should wear clothing and shoes they won’t mind getting wet and a bit multicolored :-). Two ounces of undyed Merino wool or one silk scarf (8”x 54”) included in price of class.
** Acid dyes work on protein fibers, such as silk, wool, angora, alpaca, mohair, feathers, and even nylon (chemically similar to silk; thanks, Dharma Trading Co., for the info!).
Fees for additional items to dye: $5 per item purchased from the Foldout Cat; $2 per item brought from home.
