Dyeing with Jacquard Jars of Magic

Okay. So sometimes, we are a little behind. For instance, last week all the staff here at Fancy Tiger Crafts took our yarn dyeing class taught by the wonderful Megan of Sleep Season Goods and we found out about the wonderful world of Jacquard dyes!

You may have known about these little jars of powdered magic for a while, but they blew our minds! We promptly ordered almost all the colors for the store so you, too, can create beautiful yarns, rovings, locks and even fabrics. That's right, these little babies can dye all sorts of fibers from silk to cotton to wool and alpaca. A little goes a long way too, so one little jar will have you dyeing loads of things.

Here is some of the magic we made with Megan the other night...

We can't wait to see what you dye!
