Welcome to Salish Sea Yarn Co.'s first yarn dyeing workshop! 

This is your chance to create the perfectly unique yarn of your dreams! Led by Marley Suarez, our Head Dyer of three years as well as a natural dyer, knitter and all around fiber enthusiast. Together we will discuss the in's and out's of synthetic dyeing on protein fibers. Starting with a brief sit down orientation and follow up with the fun part where you get to dye your own yarn! No prior experience is necessary, just a willingness to create and have fun.
