We will work with the variety of ways to discharge color for yarns or fabric that is too even or not the right color.
· There are several methods for discharging or removing color out of yarn or fabric. We'll explore what works, what is best for the fiber and what doesn't work.
· Bring skeins of wool, silk or cotton or even polyester/cotton or wool blends. If you have fabric or a shirt that needs a color change, bring those. Nothing larger (i.e. jeans or several yards of cloth). Acetate fiber will work, but 100% polyester and acrylic does not. · If there is time; you can re-dye the item(s) or wait until our next meeting.
Member fee is $5.00 for materials, non-members $10.
Non-members may attend once; otherwise we ask that non-members become members at the next meeting.
