Description

Learn the bundle dyeing technique to create a naturally unique and colourful British wool sock blank or scarf. Using a selection of seasonal, homegrown and responsibly foraged flowers and leaves, we will decorate the sock blank (a knitted length of fabric) or scarf which we will then roll and tie together before steaming to lock in the colour. You can choose to dye either a sock blank or scarf. The sock blank has been machine knitted by Ria in a 100% British Corriedale wool yarn developed for socks. It is non - superwash and has no nylon content. The scarf has been knitted in Ria's bespoke Shetland-Romney lambswool yarn. All materials and handouts are provided but please bring an apron and rubber gloves. Ria is a Bristol based designer who creates sustainable knitwear using local lambswool and dyed with homegrown and foraged plants. This workshop will be held at No Frills Knitting, 15 Cannon Street, Bedminster, Bristol, BS3 1BH.
