Rainbow fleece! This is fleece I dyed last year for a project for Spin Off magazine. I've dug it out again to mix with some black fleece I bought at Estes Park Wool Market for some tapestry experimentation. I'm the spouse at an academic conference this week and what better thing to do (after hiking) than carding some wool and spinning it up for tapestry... drop spindle of course. The Ladybug is a little much for travel.

Remember this goober? This photo was taken as I was getting ready to teach for Convergence in 2014 and was drowning in yarn. My niece had visited our place in Santa Fe and I had this kid pool... Drowning in yarn was how I felt. Let me tell you, yarn is hot in Santa Fe in the summer! I was reading an article I wrote for Fiber Art Now. I'm still drowning in yarn, but I don't have a kiddie pool anymore (or a dog to use it).

I had a great time dyeing these rainbow yarns. Scroll left for more. I dyed many skeins of each color and will have some for my tapestry retreats for the next year or so.

Last color in a short gradation in tiny skeins for students in some upcoming retreats. (Shhhhh.... secret.) It didn't seem like much yarn when I was skeining it, but that is 39 little skeins. Acid wool dyeing, some shade  of purple--formula from my Lifelines tapestry.

Purple. That pot is full of yarn for an upcoming retreat and hopefully a few after that. This may be the last batch of yarn I dye for students... but I've said that before. I do love dyeing.
Also, the red chicken boots. It rained 2.25 inches in northern Colorado over the last two days. That is astounding!!! And the chicken boots come in handy when refilling the bird feeders. turns out birds like the rain.

The last of the rainbow dye is drying! This photo is from the last time I did this dye job. The yarns are for my Foundations Tapestry Retreat later this month in Vermont.

The dye pots are bubbling again. This is the first three colors of a color wheel dye for my May tapestry retreat.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Somehow the last time I dyed I managed to put holes in at least two big stainless steel pots. Really a bummer as they cost at least $100 each. Guy at the beer making store when I went to buy another one today said to try JB Weld. Hoping for the $5 fix. And also, never put boiling pots outside in the snow and then forget about them so long they start to freeze. Apparently even steel can crack.

There are several ways to look at this. At long last I started weaving the commission. The header is finished. When I went looking for the first colors of  yarn I'd need--only three of them... I couldn't find one of the colors. I did locate these three small balls. They are the samples. I looked and looked. No larger balls of yarn. I pulled out my dye book.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I. Never. Dyed. These. Three. Colors.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So I could perhaps beat my head against the wall, but instead chose to look at my procrastination in putting all the clean dye pots away in the dye studio so I could put my car in the garage again as a blessing... Procrastination meant that I could get those three pots on the burners in less than an hour this morning. And maybe while I'm at it, the huge pile of undyed yarn waiting to be made into rainbows for the summer retreats can get dyed too. Miracles do happen.

I'm going to be doing just a little more dyeing in the coming week... this time I'm dyeing the color wheel again for my upcoming tapestry retreats. Funny thing. These colors always get used up. More information about my retreats on my website, link in profile @rebeccamezofftapestry under Workshops.

Yarn. I love it. Even when I'm weary of dyeing it, I love it. I am dyeing what I hope are the last colors for this project today. We'll see if that ends up being the truth!

Acid wool dyes are wonderful. Sabraset are the best (from Prochemical and Dye in the USA). The dye bath is clear when I am finished. This is a big misconception among people who haven’t dyed much. There is no wasted dye. And I use that bath over and over again. .

The yarn pile is growing quickly. Many trips to the ranch store to fill the propane tanks and many more skeins to go.

Yarn. I love it almost all the time. These are thin singles--samples in process. This yarn is made by Harrisville Designs. They are now selling it commercially undyed. It is called the Koehler single after my teacher, James Koehler who first asked them to make it. @harrisvilledesigns .

While I'm dyeing... thinking about making this color wheel again for my retreats this year. It is fun to dye and students seem to enjoy the colors--some students anyway. Maybe I'll dye a muted version for the people who don't like these brights. I think a tapestry of crayons would be great with these. Yes, that is definitely a plan.

Yarn samples... and I have another batch to do though I am the most certain about the last set and if the first few turn out well, I'll just dye the whole lot. I am pretty sure many if not most of my colleagues think my dye process is completely nuts. Sometimes I remember that people just buy yarn in the store already dyed and don't end up spending months and months sampling and finding the "right" colors. But it is my process so I will, for now, continue it. Back to dyeing.

There are moments where I realize my process around making colors for my tapestries is a lot different than many of my colleagues. I'm not sure how it evolved into this lengthy process of sampling and dyeing, but here I am. I do love the dye process (though I am sore today and only hope that all that lifting is making me stronger--makes me sleep well!). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here are some more samples for the ends of the range. I think they are good, but have a gap here to fill and a little darker on the teals. I have another set of samples to do for another set of shapes in this tapestry but I am dyeing the large amounts for the background colors. #itisaprocess .

Blues. Tapestry yarns I dyed waiting to be balled and woven into samples for the commission. I love dyeing in gradation like this. The resulting weaving is pretty fun also.

Winding again. I'm going to be doing this a lot in the coming weeks as I dye large amounts of yarn for a commission. The tapestry behind the yarn is Lifelines (24 x 72 inches).

Hand-dyed tapestry yarn. These are samples for my commission... winding in to balls. Thank goodness for that Nancy's Knit Knacks electric ball winder. There will be much more to do in the coming weeks. I call this my yarn management room. .

I woke up on New Year's Day and thought, I'm going to start this year right. I am going to spend much of it weaving a huge commission, so today is the day to dive back into it after a bit of a hiatus forced by a redesign. I wrote a blog post about it and you can find the link in my profile @rebeccamezofftapestry. These are the samples I dyed last summer. Fortunately they are still loved by the client. I have a bit more sampling to do as well as some woven samples. The loom is already warped. I need to lay my hands on a deeper reed for my Harrisville Rug Loom and before I know it, I'm going to be weaving. (Oh wait, I have to dye 40-50 pounds of yarn first. The tapestry is 9 x 9 feet. If you need me I'll be in my dye studio... which is just fancy talk for my garage.)

Best excuse to go for ice cream. The sample spoons are perfect for dye measuring. I prefer the Baskin Robbins ones but any ice cream sample spoon will do. My week(s) in the dye studio.

Blues and turquoise... always my favorites. Dyeing is done for the week as I am teaching a retreat again this weekend. I made enough progress to send samples to the client and I am pleased with the results so far. :

Still playing with dye samples. I like these colors--a major design feature of the piece but not a large percentage of the total yarn. I was trying to fill that gap between colors in the top right. One formula set switches to another and the gap had to be figured out. Tried two (center) and one was pretty good. Full gradation at the bottom... at least for now.

Back to the dye pots today. I am working through dye samples for a large tapestry. I love this challenge of finding just the right combination of dye to get the colors and then gradations I want. This is a very large project. Samples this morning were numbers 46-55. I am getting closer but I bet I do another 50 before I have enough information to send them to the client. Then I start weaving samples. I am so excited to be heading back to the big loom soon!

I am fairly pleased with this dye project. This wool will be the backing for the tapestries I wove at Petrified Forest National Park at my artist residency there. They are headed to a show in Athens, GA which opens at Lyndon HouseJune 10.

Finally some color out of those dye pots! I have been dyeing brown and black for at least a week now so the blue and purple are welcome. And that light gray? My victory of the weekend. See the blog post about my string of dye mishaps from the 22nd and you'll know why I am very happy with that! Difficult to do and this is probably the best result I have ever had for this value of black. Of course I see an error in the blue to purple gradation and fear another color will need to be added. Onward. Today there is teal in the dye pots.

I have had SEVERAL dye problems today, one which left me and my table of equipment covered in black dye. But this yarn was not involved. This yarn is a project for another tapestry weaver.

The dye project is going well. Not only is the weather incredible for March in Colorado (snow, wind, rain, hail expected at all times but I will take 75 and sunny for as long as I can get it). These skeins are for the workshops I am teaching this summer. I am also dyeing some amazing tapestry singles from Burnhams for a friend's work. More photos coming soon. Also, when you wake up and realize you could speed up production by a third by purchasing another large pot, a trip to the brewing store is a quick fix. I don't know why it never occurred to me living in one of the biggest microbrewing towns in the US. Where beer is made, stainless steel pots can be had for much less than those fancy restaurant ones.

Prep day for dyeing this week... While waiting for the arrival of the rest of the yarn today, what I have from the client is getting labeled, retired, and soaked. The sampling alone took many days. And then there is the prep which takes more time... and finally if I have all my ducks in a row, the dyeing of these 14 colors should go fairly quickly, though due to the volume of yarn, probably will take three days (I only have two very large pots). In these photos you can see the labeled dye samples, some gorgeous churro being soaked, redoing the ties because they have to be loose or you will get a resist and manufacturers don't send them dye-ready, and a box of skeined Harrisville singles that I will also be dyeing while the pots are going. This project is for a client and the first time I am dyeing this much yarn for someone else. I am good at this. I am sure it will turn out well! (She says a little nervously.)

In these photos you can see the labeled dye samples, some gorgeous churro being soaked, redoing the ties because they have to be loose or you will get a resist and manufacturers don't send them dye-ready, and a box of skeined Harrisville singles that I will also be dyeing while the pots are going. This project is for a client and the first time I am dyeing this much yarn for someone else. I am good at this. I am sure it will turn out well!
