The best part of dyeing your own fabrics are the beautiful colours you can mix.
Turquoise and blue are beautiful together. I think this would pair nicely with a pair of jeans and navy blazer for the spring.
With the scarf above, I wanted to try to create a plaid design. This scarf was folded, wrapped and dipped three times. Each time, the resist I used was larger, covering up more of the scarf and the dye bath was intensified.
I will try this technique again, and try for a little more variation between the first two dye baths.
A circular resist was used for this yellowish green and blue/gray scarf.
Coral and brown are always a great colour combination. This scarf was tightly twisted before being dyed.
Cerulean blue and black used to dye the scarf above. The same twisting technique was used as in the coral and brown scarf, but, this was not twisted as tightly. You can see that the dye penetrated the entire scarf with no light spots.
The scarf above was dyed using the Parfait method described by Ann Johnston in her book: Color by Accident. The scarf was first submerged in yellow, then turquoise and finally in the gray. I love the colours together – it looks like two completely different scarves, when it’s folded in half.
All of these scarves are available for purchase: $40.00 each. They are 17″ wide and 70″ long. They are easy to care for: machine wash and air dry. They are a great way to add some colour to your wardrobe this spring!
