After each dye session I clean off all my tools, rinse out towels, wipe down my tables all to ensure I don't waste any dye. I place the liquid dye stock into old Pickle and Mason jars to use later on.
Dry skeins of yarn are placed into jars and the left over dye stock is poured over the yarn along with a little citric acid, and more water.
Presto! Once the dye is set I examine the individual skeins and begin th emagical process of creating more layers and depths pleasing to the heart.
These pickles are one of a kind wonders, and the name was coined by Charity over here at Brine Dyeworks. She has given me permission to help trend the Pickles!
