A little bit of colour!

My order of long white mohair arrived today. Special requirement for a custom bear that the collector has requested I dye 'iolite blue'. Unfortunately it ended up a little more purple than blue... but we'll see how it turns out when its dry. Also dyed one of Miss Chelsea's white wonder-suits - which did go deep blue! And dip-dyed one of my white shirts. (and my hands are also a lovely shade of purple-blue now too!).


  1. beautiful color! i need to dye some shirts too. what brand of dye do you use?

  2. it's very beautiful... and omg dying is addicting!

  3. thanks guys - the brand is 'Tintex' - high temp fabric dye. For cotton, rayon, linen, nylon, silk, wool and their blends.

  4. Gorgeous colour Emma! I like that it has a hint of purple. You are very inspiring with your dyeing.
