How to make a dye stock solution

I made a little video on how to make a dye stock solution.  I have kettle dyed rovings and yarn.  I have also handpainted yarn, but I really want to try and dye roving with squirt bottles of dye stock solution.  I used the technique from the book "Dyeing to Knit" by Elaine Eksesen.  It's a wonderful book on dyeing techniques that translate well into amazing knitted garments. 


  1. Great tip using the coffee filter! I'm going to have to start doing that.

  2. Great video. Thanks! Which dyes do you use?
