THREAD

In which we rewind and dye thread!

We begin with a silky spool of white cotton thread.

In order to dye the thread we have to rewind it into loose skeins.

Yours truly displaying the results – all 6,000 yards worth!

Sounds like a good time for a cupcake break!

One last look before the thread is forever changed!

Next we wash the thread.

Our humble and inconspicuous indigo fermentation vat.

Even the bucket is taking on a lovely blue hue.

The vat is ready when the surface of the vat appears metallic.

Dyemaster Elissa!

Removing the thread carefully so as not to aerate the dye.

The breathtaking results!!

  1. Very pretty indeed. Are you going to deepen the color with multiple dips?
