Snow Day 2024!
A couple weeks ago almost 8 inches of snow fell on us here in Nashville. Since we were stuck inside for a few days (avoiding the iciest roads we've ever seen), I decided to make use of all that snowfall by dyeing with it.
I grabbed some tubs and scooped up snow off our back porch stairs and backyard picnic table.
After gathering the snow (and then warming back up), I set up to dye some yarn, but also experiment with dyeing cotton fabric, wool twill fabric, and a couple shirts for my nibling.
To dye the yarn, I laid out yarn in empty pans and completely covered it with snow.
I then sprinkled some dyes across the snow in a way that I hoped would create some interesting looks once the snow melted and distributed the dye out across the skeins.
The end result was so far from my normal dye style I don't think I could ever recreate it!
I did the same process for the pieces of fabric and shirts, and here are a few sections showing how the wool twill and cotton fabric turned out.
If you have any ideas for 3 yards of a gauzy wool twill fabric let me know!
