If you are one of the folks who likes to read comments on Blogs, then you might notice a comment on my last post r.e. the use of RIT dye.
It stems from a question I posed over at Marie's blog, Permission to Unwind, about her beautiful newly finished sweater.
(Go peek, I'll wait.)
Isn't that a beautiful sweater she made?
She mentioned having used RIT dye to make it the creamy, hot cocoa color you see in the photos and that got me curious about that particular dyeing process.
I remember my mom using RIT dye to color sheets when we were kids. I believe she simply used our washing machine for the whole process. I've never really looked at the dye too closely. So I was curious as to how Marie was able to dye a wool sweater. She had some great tips, especially to keep the object from felting. I may have to give it a try some time!
Anyone else out there ever used RIT? Do you have any tips to pass along?
