Last night I dyed up a dozen Phydlbitz Sock, using a variety of techniques — some dry-dye, some wet-dye, and some combinations of wet and dry. In the close-up picture down at the bottom you can see how the different techniques with the same dye can create different effects.
All of these are Phydlbitz Sock – 75/25 SWCorriedale/Nylon, 430 yards, and will be ready to ship on Friday. When they go to the Blog Reader Specials page tomorrow, they will be $26.00 apiece. Claim any of them today (Wednesday, 12April17) for just $22 apiece by sending me an email and telling me which ones you want. I’ll send you a Paypal invoice and will include shipping/handling for y our destination, so be sure to tell me your state or country. 🙂
They are all dyed as Twinsets so they can be used for larger projects like shawls or baby blankets, but there is no obligation to take a Twinset. For example, #206 would be used with #203, or #205, or even #210.
Already Claimed: 200, 201, 202, 203, 204, 208, 209, 210, 211
Here an example of how the dry dye method turns out: I used a wet-dye solution of a gold dyer, mixed into the water/acid solution as I normally do, and laid that as a base. Then I also used a very small amount of the dye powder sprinkled lightly over the top. The dye powder is actually not a single color, but a blend of many colors which, when mixed into solution blend to form the single gold color. But when applied as a dry powder, each of the colors is able to express itself, resulting in a totally unique finished yarn.
