Etsy Finds: Dyed Muslin Yarn

When I experimented with tea and coffee dying this spring, I found the process of hand dyeing fibers fascinating. 

Bess Hudson of Subtle Arts sells amazing yarn in her etsyLadyRSanti. Not only does Bess hand dye wool, she also dyes muslin with natural ingredients such as indigo, walnuts and cochineal.

Bess' dyeing takes ordinary rag yarn to a must-have luxury. Each dye lot is unique. The beauty of such yarn comes from the imperfections, the variations of color. I hope to splurge on this lovely yarn one day.
