Indigo is a dye which has captivated my creative mind since the first time I saw that magical change of colour about 7 years ago. The vast variation of tones of blue has been the biggest influence in my textile practice, and I now spend countless days dyeing yarn and fabric with this once illusive hue. Today I’m sharing with you a few photos from my indigo dyeing session this morning.
In this session, I dyed natural, ecru yarn. Each skein was either handspun hemp, ramie or paper from Habu Textiles
In the next few months I am planning more posts based around my current studio practice and final major project, so watch out for more posts like this in the near future. Please feel free to ask me any questions or share your experience with indigo in the comments.
