Neal Howard the Weaver


Host a dye party for your guild or customers! One or two days. Space-dye skeins or warps of silks, wools, silk/wool blends with Lanaset/Sabracet (acid) dyes. Learn a little color theory. Have a lot of fun! Come away with yarn you've dyed yourself for socks, scarves, or accent in a larger project. For knitters, crocheters, weavers. Number of participants is limited by your available space. Cost depends on how much prep work I must do, travel time, etc.


Get a taste of this exciting technique I refer to as loom controlled tie dye, but is so much more!, in one weekend. Participants will be sent instructions ahead of time on warping their looms. Weave a variety of samples in a round robin or plan a small project. We'll weave, gather the threads, and dye. Fiber content should be limited to protein fibers due to the nature of Lanaset/Sabracet dyes. Recommended reading: Woven Shibori by Catharine Ellis. Limit 10. Cost $600.00 for two days, plus expenses.

dye party!
