Getting Ready to Dye (14:59)
Meet Sarah Eyre, expert dyer and fiber artist. She’ll introduce you to the benefits of home dyeing, then help you choose yarns, dyes, and safe, easy-to-use mordants. Next, you’ll set up your dye space with tools and supplies you can dedicate to dyeing, and already have on hand.
