Learn the bundle dyeing technique to create a naturally unique and colourful Shetland wool sock blank.

Using a selection of responsibly foraged leaves, flowers and dye plant extracts we will decorate the sock blank (a knitted length of fabric) which we will then roll and tie together before steaming to lock in the colour. Once taken home and dried, these can then be knitted directly from the blank to create a pair of socks or other accessory – the unique colour and pattern will reveal itself as you knit with it.

Materials: All yarn and dye materials provided but please bring an apron.
