Sock blank Dyeing 2.jpg

Hand dye your very own sock blank to be used to create a matching pair of socks or a beautiful shawl.

A sock blank is a knitted piece of material that once dyed can be unraveled to turn into a new creation. Everything you need will be provided. Leave with a sock blank dyed and instructions on how to steam set your yarn at home.  

Wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty (cotton is suggested, the acid dyes should wash out).  

Easy, fun class!  Just show up, pick your colors, and dye!

Class space limited, so get your space secured right away!

*You will have the option to dye additional sock blanks for additional fees.
