ABOUT

As a graphic designer turned fibre artist and with background in colour theory, I absolutely love mixing dye colours. Most colour books I am working on are made using a systematic approach. This collection is not based on any system. I used DROPS yarn colour palette as inspiration and then added my own favourite colours for a classic vintage or natural look. I set out to use only a specific number of Dharma Acid Dyes that are on the easier side to use. By easy to use, I mean colours that bond to the fibre more easily and at a similar rate (except for True Turquoise, which seems to require higher heat or longer dye time). Dharma dye colour 'Moss' in Muffs Classic Colour Collection is the original version and the mixture has since changed. I am expecting any recipes with the new version of 'Moss' to be a bit more yellow as stated on Dharma Tradings website.
