Learn to plant dye on organic Shetland wool
In this online course you will learn about the magic qualities of the Elder and the Nettle and how to use them to naturally dye yarn. We will explore the effect of using the same dye on different dye bases by dyeing onto Uradale Yarns natural white, light fawn and medium fawn Organic Native Shetland yarn, and the effect of adding iron to the dye lot.
