Proudly presenting the latest coup from yesterday´s dyeing session
with indigo and my self-made jerseys.
|before dyeing - the tied pieces of silk-tencel-lycra-jersey|
|just after a 2 hour bath in the indigo dye|
When the dying process is finished, the samples must be washed thoroughly - washing-off bigger pieces of fabric by hand takes AGES. If washing-off the fabric with the washing machine, the white part of the sample wouldn´t stay white and would turn into a light blue, because the indigo is bleeding.
|latest bit - knitted on tuesday, dyed on wednesday|
Because of using different kinds of yarns, the colour on the pattern (tencel)
isn´t that intensive like on the background, which is silk.
|here the are - 3 of the 4 finished dyeing-samples|
let´s print some fluorescent patterns on them!
just for colour inspriation...
