On Day Two, Jane Woodhouse takes over for a day of dyeing.  

We will be working with natural dye extracts doing some initial immersion dyeing with a wool/silk commercial yarn to sample dyes and mix color formulas.  Samples will be labeled to match the color recipes for reproduction.  The afternoon will be spent dyeing the spun sample skeins from the previous day.  We will mix concentrated stocks for painting skeins and finish by steaming our samples.

Level of experience :  open to all who can spin a yarn and beginning to advanced dyers, but some dyeing experience is helpful
