COLOUR
Colour can vary from screen to actual fibre. Colour appears different on different types of yarn and different shades of white or natural coloured yarn.

HOW ITS MADE
Colour palettes are different then colour books. How I make palettes is I take the closest colour from my colour book collections and adjust and test until it matches up with my digital palette… there is the odd colour that is very close and the odd colour that might be the same...like some neutrals and blacks. It takes me about a week to complete and organise into each groups of five :)

INSTRUCTIONS
Weigh out your dye recipe amounts in grams or first make a 1% solution for each Dharma dye used in this palette. Measure the recipe amounts in in mls and mix the into one cup or jar. Mix well. Place in dye bath or use your favourite dyeing method. Measure in grams is optional with basic math required.

The amounts shown for each recipe are based on 100g of fibre. If you want more saturation, double the recipe. If you want less saturation, divide the amounts in half. If you want to dye more shades of the same colour on various fibre amounts, consider using a dye calculation chart for quick reference. Available in the Muffs Etsy shop.
