So apparently “Less is more” doesn’t apply to dyeing fabric. I seem to have an inability not to dye the entire bolt EVERY TIME I get started.
It would help if I didn’t wait three years between dye runs. Of course, I’ve sort of done myself a disservice and upgraded my way out of a space to dye. My cheap and ugly laminate indestructible kitchen counters have been upgraded to butcher block (that I love)! New high efficiency washing machine too which means the rinsing gets super tedious. So now I’m bending over buckets in the Jacuzzi tub that we never use. That’s about 40 yards, less than half of what I dyed over three days. I ran out of fabric but had dye concentrate left so I threw in some clothing that has been waiting around for just such an opportunity. I’ll buy linen or cotton clothing I love if it’s on sale super cheap even if I do kind of hate beige. I can always dye it right? Eggplant outfits here I come.
pretty good that there was only one small casualty for 4 days and 120 yards of dye work. One small pinhole in a glove is all it takes. At least it’s my favorite color purple right?
