I’m going to veer away a little bit from my usual κριτικές βιβλίων βελονάκι this week to talk briefly about three books that I recently picked up on the related topic of yarn dyeing. I have been thinking about trying yarn dyeing for awhile now and it’s something I want to move forward with a bit in 2012. It’ll be interesting to see whether or not it’s something that I enjoy because I felt really drawn to the idea and then I read these books and now I’m wondering if yarn dyeing is really for me. It may not be but I do want to try it to find out and I think that these three books combined together make a terrific resource for the beginning and curious dyer.

1. Hand Dyeing Yarn And Fleece 3 Key Books for People Interested in Yarn Dyeing by Gail Callahan.

This book is all about the basics of beginning to dye yarn by hand. Although I haven’t tried it yet, the book makes me feel a lot more comfortable about the process. It simplifies the steps, breaking them down into digestible pieces. It doesn’t talk a lot about measuring stuff or making sure you have the exact right materials. Αντί, it talks about the core things that you need to do if you want to start hand dyeing yarn. It provides several different options for different steps (για παράδειγμα, using different heat sources like the stove top, the microwave or a slow cooker). This book is about dyeing natural protein yarns (like wool) using food coloring and commercial dyes.

2. Harvesting Color: How to Find Plants and Make Natural Dyes 3 Key Books for People Interested in Yarn Dyeing by Rebecca Burgess.

Ένας από τους λόγους που έχω ήδη διστάζει να ξεκινήσει βαφής των νημάτων είναι επειδή δεν θέλω πραγματικά να έχουν να ανησυχούν για τη χρήση των χημικών ουσιών στην κουζίνα μου. Έχω ένα μικρό διαμέρισμα και θα βαφή στον ίδιο χώρο όπου μαγειρεύουν και αν και ξέρω ότι άλλοι άνθρωποι κάνουν αυτό χωρίς περιστατικό, Ξέρω ότι έχω την τάση να κόψει τις γωνίες εδώ και εκεί με τη νέα χόμπι και θα προτιμούσα να μην θέσει σε κίνδυνο τον εαυτό μου με αυτόν τον τρόπο. Έτσι, έχει γίνει ολοένα και πιο ελκυστικό για μένα να σκεφτείτε για τη χρήση των φυσικών βαφών και αυτό είναι που αυτό το βιβλίο είναι όλα σχετικά με. Πρόκειται για μια σε βάθος βιβλίο για τη βαφή νημάτων με τα φυτά και τα μπαχαρικά και παίρνει για το πώς να βρείτε αυτά τα φυτά στην περιοχή σας, καθώς και πώς να αυξηθεί μερικά από αυτά. It’s a detailed counterpoint to the first book and together I feel like they’ve given me a lot of interesting information to chew on.

3. Dyeing to Knit 3 Key Books for People Interested in Yarn Dyeing by Elaine Eskesen.

This is actually a knitting pattern book so you would think at first glance that it may not interest me since I crochet but don’t knit. Ωστόσο, don’t underestimate the power of this book. It’s about how to dye yarn to use and then it’s about how to get the most out of hand-dyed yarn in your knitting. Although not all of the details apply to crochet work, I think it provides some really great information that helps to inform you about the color process and gives you a lot to think about. This food for thought seems like it would help add an extra level to the yarn dyeing experience and rounds out my list of three must-have resources for wanna-be yarn dyers. I’ll let you know if I continue to adore these books as I move forward with learning to dye.
