Join the 2018 Custom Woolen Mills Natural Dye Club!

We are so pleased to once again be collaborating with fibre artist, Megan Samms, to offer the Custom Woolen Mills Natural Dye Club subscription. This years limited quantity subscription is a gather-along, dye-along, knit-along creating natural wool dyes from common kitchen scraps. What does that mean? That means we send you a kit with 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 gathering our 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 is an excellent way to gain experience with natural dyeing. 

This year's project is a great one for both first time dyers and those with a little bit more experience. The knit pattern, designed by Megan Samms, is a sturdy little shawl perfect for a bit of added warmth on cool spring and fall days! The dyes stuffs we will use to get a range of pinks, yellows, blue/greys, and browns are advocado skins, onion skins, black beans, and tea.  

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 2018. 

Learn more about why we started the CWM Natural Dye Club in our blog Announcing the CWM Natural Dye Club 2017.
