Learn to dye blues that stay Beautifully Blue. Jane will show examples of wool exposed to sunlight and discuss the lightfast information available for “pure dyes. Did you know that each ‘pure dye’ is ranked from 1 to 8 in lightfastness? You will use simple lightfast charts that include brands like Pro Chem, Jacquard, Dharma Trading and Ciba. Once you know which blue dyes are best you will see ways to improve your favorite formulas. We will cover color families, such as blue-green & blue-violet, pastels and processing wool to improve lightfastness. Next comes the fun as you experiment and dye at home in Zoom Dye Sessions. Learn to skip the faders and use better blue dyes, so that you can dye skies, water and spaceships that all stay Beautifully Blue. Materials available from instructor at minimal cost.
