Hand painted yarn experiment

Amy Tyson

We wanted more color! We decided to try painting yarn in bright colors and weave it into our Mosaic pattern. I selected a thick, soft yarn that looks like handspun.

Drying the yarn in the sun.

The yellow came out very strong and blended with the turquoise to create a bright green. We used warm gold wool for the background color. The warp is medium brown and camel.

The finished runner is bright and perfect for a kitchen. It's 3' x 6'.  Now what to make with the last 2 balls of yarn?
