Dyeing in the Kitchen Dyeing your own yarn or fiber offers the same satisfaction as making your own homemade soup. You know exactly what goes in it, you can tweak the ingredients to get exactly what you want, you can make endless variations from just a few basic ingredients. Plus, it’s fun! And you can do it right in your own kitchen!
Color and Yarn Design for Spinners With these simple, inspired approaches, anyone can design yarns that are rich, intriguing, complex, and effective. Deb Menz takes inspiration from the world around her—mother nature, photos, fabrics, anything that pleases her eye—and applies the “more is more” approach to creating fiber blends for spinning stunning single and plied yarns.
Color Works for Spinners There’s magic in color, but creating wonderful color for spinning and felting is what you might call “practical” magic. Start with colored fiber – natural or dyed. Add a blending tool (a drum carder is Deb’s choice). Mix and play using some simple, basic color principles – and there’s no limit to the possibilities.
Watching the colors roll off Deb’s drum carder is endlessly fascinating, and every new exercise suggests a hundred more that you’ll want to try for yourself. It’s an endless adventure.
