Vintage Knits Update

The Forgotten Box

Filed under: Vintage Meanderings — sadie @ 12:14 am

We just found an unopened box of yarn dyes that somehow was placed in the back of a storage closet and forgot about for over a year. These are yarn dyes that we received in 2008, and are just now getting them online. The dyes are fine. We are just a bit embarrassed that we neglected this shipment for so long.

Dyeing your own yarn is a great way to put your creative side in action. Not just knitting the sock or sweater, but creating your one of a kind color-way, and seeing how it knits up. Vintage Knits recommends the Gaywool Original Dyes. These dyes are high quality and have a vibrant color range, which can be strengthened or diluted to suit your taste. Everything is included with these dyes. There are no extra solvents or stabilizers that need to be purchased. Best of all, your fiber will be color fast in 30 minutes.

Here is the Gaywool Original Yarn Dyes color-card (click the photo for a larger view):

Gaywool Original Yarn Dyes
We stock 19 colors of the Gaywool Original Dyes. The dyes are priced at $16.00 each. These dyes are manufactured in Australia, and are sold in 100 gram (3.5 ounce) containers, which can dye up to 2.2 pounds of natural fibers.

If you want to start dyeing with a complete kit, check out our Louet Yarn Dyeing Kits. These kits come complete with the dyes, and enough yarn to make a pair of socks. You might also be interested in books on yarn dyeing. We carry several titles on dyeing yarn. Check out our book department for the current yarn dyeing books available.
