Want to try natural dyeing? We have the perfect yarn to get you started!
Bob's BFL is a 2 ply, DK weight blue faced leicester wool yarn from a flock in Michigan. (Yes, the farmer's name is Bob). We have mordanted these skeins in 10% alum with water and dried them. They are ready to go for your dye adventures with natural plants. Each skein is 100 grams and 231 yards.
Some plants that I have dyed with:
- black eyed susan
- queen anne's lace
- jewel weed
- dyer's chamomille
Dyeing with natural plants is a lot of fun and we have taken some of the work out of it by providing already mordanted yarn for you. Check out the video below to show you how I dyed one skein in a jar with coreopsis flowers - my favorite dye material.
