Project

Microwave Dyed Wool

What are you most proud of? Managing to rewind the ball without any knots or tangles, even though my baby was "helping" with the wool. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Interestingly, there seems to be a use-by date on household latex gloves! I realised *after* I had dye everywhere that the gloves were developing holes. Ooops.

You Can Make This

A.A. made Microwave Dyed Wool with:

  • 100% wool* (any will work
  • this is to match a half-finished project using a chunky yarn); food dye; vinegar; microwave-safe dish with lid (glass is easier to clean); microwave *NOTE: food dye only works on animal fibres - sheep
  • alpaca
