Description

The purpose of this design was to explore natural dyes from trees on various yarns in hand woven and machine knitted textiles and to experiment with thickened dyewood colors painted onto yarn to create gradients. The shapes and color gradients found on tree bark inspired the application of dye to yarn as well as the hand woven and machine knitted patterns. This design is part of a design group with the overall purpose of exploring dyewoods.
