I love that one of the reasons Gail Callahan gives for becoming a dyer in her wonderful book Hand Dyeing Yarn and Fleece is that it’s a way for us to fix regrettable yarn purchases. I actually thought about that unfortunate lime green yarn I was talking about yesterday as I was reading this book, though I think it’s cotton and this book focuses only on protein fibers (meaning wool, silk and the like).
