Acid Dye color-mixing recipes?
  • I'm going to be using the Jacquard Acid Dyes to dye wool yarn and spinning fiber, and I'm wondering if anyone can point me to some recipes for mixing my own colors. I plan to do a lot of improvising and "playing", but would like some recipes to use as jumping-off points. Thanks!
  • We are going to have to leave these to our esteemed dyeing mavens and virtuosos out there!

  • My reference point is the Shipwreck shawl on knitty.com. They dyed it with 3 tsp of sapphire blue and 1/4 tsp black. I am allergic to black. Can I use the same recipe using silver grey to come out with a color in the other direction? Or would I need to increase the grey more than 1/4 tsp?
    Thanks.
