Our very own Jeanne stars in this knitting instructional video about how to knit with hand dyed yarn. We hope you enjoy it!
Our love affair with hand-dyed yarns just seems to grow and grow! As much as we adore them, we do know that knitting and crocheting with an individually hand-dyed fiber can become frustrating when there is variation from skein to skein. So, our very own hand-dyed yarn maven, Jeanne, set out to create a series of instructional videos to put those frustrations to rest. In this first video of a three-part series, Jeanne explains and demonstrates the art (and joy!) of working with hand-dyed yarns! She provides a few different techniques to try if you have skeins of the same color that differ in appearance:
Ta-Da! You are now on your way to becoming a hand-dyed master! These simple techniques work just as well for when you have mixed dye lots for any type of yarn. To learn more about hand-dyed yarns, visit our Hand Dyed Yarn Guide where you can find links to hand-dyed yarns that we carry, the rest of the hand-dyed yarn instructional videos, and additional printed resources on hand-dyed yarn techniques!
