CWM Natural Dye Club

Join the first Custom Woolen Mills Natural Dye Club!

We are so pleased to be collaborating with fibre artist, Megan Samms, to offer the inaugural Custom Woolen Mills Natural Dye Club subscription. This limited quantity subscription is a grow-along, dye-along, knit along. What does that mean? That means we send you a kit with dye plant seeds for growing, natural 100% wool yarn, a pattern, and instructions for signing in with the group. Once you sign in, you'll start receiving email correspondence as we all go through the process together of growing our dye plants,  harvesting ripe dye-stuff, preparing and mordanting our yarn for dyeing, dyeing our yarn, and then knitting up the finished project. The majority of the correspondence will be between the months of April and September. 

This year's project is a great one for the beginner gardener, beginner dyer, and beginner knitter alike. Designed by Megan Samms, the ksikwekewiku's gloves, or, 'fruit and berry ripening moon' gloves, are a beautiful little pair of fingerless gloves made for harvesting - colour, food, life experiences...you name it! We'll be growing marigolds to dye with. If you love knitting with naturally dyed yarns, but hate growing stuff, or vice versa, consider getting two subsciptions and partnering up with a friend - one of you does the growing, you do the dyeing together, and one of you does the knitting!

Price is per subscription and does not include shipping of the kit. All correspondence for the CWM Natural Dye Club is by email only. New subscriptions available only until the end of March 2017.
