What hue are you?

Earthues Natural Dyes

Today, it’s time to explore Earthues natural dyes.  These dyes have rich color and are safe to dispose of making them a friend to Earth – and we all know Mother Earth can use all the friends she can gather.  When visiting the site, you are greeted as a friend and colorist, a wonderful word I haven’t heard since art school. I love that!  My anticipation of pure glee builds from there.

Earthues has compiled a dye kit and packaged them in a fun reusable box. The dye is perfect for both animal and plant fibers with no heavy metals or tin.  Your color results will vary slightly, depending on the fiber you’re using, but that’s what makes your exploration unique and fun.  Each kit includes everything you need to dye up to 40 lbs of your own yarn or fiber, tools, instruction booklet and assistance.  You may also purchase Earthues colors individually.

Earthues are available at Halcyon Yarn and other retailers.  Visit the Where to buy tab on the Earthues site to locate a retailer near you.

I hope you enjoy an adventure in color soon.
