In my house if it’s not nailed down (and can be cut into strips), then I’m probably going to try and knit with it. Fortunately this fact lends itself well to recycling, especially all of the old t-shirts that tend to pile up in a household of 5.
- Choose color from the Custom Dye Color Kit Chart (I went with “Mango” for Spring). Following the chart’s recipe, add dye mixture and 1 gallon of HOT water to pot.
- Immerse t-shirt yarn into dye bath and stir continuously for 15 minutes. Let soak for at least 45 minutes more, stirring occasionally.
- Thoroughly rinse t-shirt yarn in cool water and mild soap until water runs clear. Wring excess water out. Hang dry.
- Wind into ball before using.
