I took this picture so Amelia can identify the different things and, who’s they were, in the cover.

Lay out of pieces over three thin layers of roving. I added bits of wool between them… just like Marie has taught in her Nuno felting video.”

Wooly Wednesday Felting Broadcast featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

Living Felt turned 14 on March 14th this year! Many thanks to our friends for felting with us and keeping our community warm, friendly and growing!

Wooly Wednesday Felting Broadcast featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

Marie discussed “why dye” and shared a few things from her own stash that she has hand dyed. These locks were dyed with Jacquard acid dye in a kettle, the color is Lilac.

Wooly Wednesday Dyeing Workspace featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

We looked at basic set up and safety of your work space, person and tools. We discussed heating methods such as solar dyeing, a stove top pot, electric kettle and microwave. We forgot to mention the importance of a thermometer…get one in the food gadgets aisle of your local grocery. We also discussed a few ways to apply dye, and how to prepare your fabric or fiber.

Wooly Wednesday Dyeing Silk Fabric featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

We applied dye to silk fabrics for microwaving with squeeze bottles and pipettes. Anne used natural food coloring which will produce a mild color and may not be very color fast, but fun and safe for kiddos.

Marie used Jacquard Acid dyes in Sapphire, Navy and Black on Margilan Silk yardage. The “acid” is just food grade white vinegar.

Next we “sprinkle dyed” locks with the acid dyes. You can do this for low immersion dyeing as we do in our kettle, or for the microwave, or even solar dyeing.

This is the silk we dyed during the broadcast. Notice how the colors go from Sapphire to Navy to Black…it was so easy!
