Itajime Dyeversion

Way too much going on. Guess it’s time to dye again!

Took an older piece of cotton that was already dyed and decide to do-over dye-over.

Folded it up like a spanokopita

Assembled the usual suspects

changed my mind from turquoise to golden yellow -I decided I didn’t want too much change, just a subtle one

tied it up with waxed twinedropped it in the dyebath, added the soda ash – here’s what started to happenI’ll leave it to soak and hope for the best!

      Thanks Allison. I love this stuff it is from Dharma Trading Co. called “waxed sinew”

      • Oh! I think we used that stuff in a birch bark basket-weaving course. I never got the actual name but it was described to me as “fake sinew”, haha. Maybe I still have some kicking around…
