My name is Sophie and I moved in Ireland 3 years ago. I have been a knitter for ages and started to dye my own yarn last year.
As I try to take care of what I use in my life, I never thought of dyeing with industrial colours, and so instead I started dyeing with plants.
After doing lots of internet research, experimental dyeing with local plants (sometimes successful and sometimes not!), harassing my colleagues for them to keep me onions skins, avocados pits and other leftovers (luckily I work in a restaurant!) and involving my boyfriend in my dyeing adventure; it has now become a big part of my life. And I love it!
I work in my kitchen, with small pot. I turn this “disadvantage” into something positive as all of my skeins are unique! I only dye four skeins at a time. Not more and sometimes less. So if you like one, take it NOW!
