The Annual Fall-time Dyeing Process

Clarissa Rizal: Alaska Native Artist Blog - Fri, 10/24/2014 - 3:37pm

Clarissa uses a trouser rack for her 2nd stage of the drying process of her newly-dyed weft yarns for Chilkat weavings

I generally dye my weft yarns for weaving twice a year:  in the Spring when all the snow has melted from the back yard and in the Fall when the leaves are turning the same color as my favorite golden yellow weft yarns shown above!

Gently wash 2oz or 4oz skeins of yarn in lukewarm water with a squirt of Ivory dish soap

I dye a total of 16 ozs (1 pound) of wool per dye bath, so in the big bread bowl above, I gently washed and rinsed 8 2-oz skeins of yarn.  After your wash and rinse, let yarn soak in the bowl for another hour before placing in dye bath – this allowance of time gives your yarns better absorbtion of color as well as evenly-distributed color.

Using rubber gloves, separately add each skein to the dye-bath; gently give the skein a stir into the bath

I ALWAYS DYE OUTSIDE.  It is safer, especially if there is no wind.  I use Lanaset commercial dyes for my weft yarns; they are color-fast, intense colors that will not fade easily.  Follow the directions in your Lanaset dye recipe.  Make your dye bath accordingly.  Always wear rubber gloves when working with commercial dyes; always wear a dust mask too especially if there is wind or in an enclosed space – commercial powder dyes are toxic!

While gently stirring the dye bath every 2 minutes (shown in right pot), I had prepared the next dye batch by soaking the washed and rinsed weft yarns (in left bowl) AND in the meantime, I had washed about 100 yards of warp (in middle pot) — yes, indeed I am a multi-tasker!

When cooking outdoors, use a windscreen made from a piece of foil hooked together at the seam by a large paper clip…I learned this trick from my friend Lis Saya who helped me dye yarns last year…!
