Hi! I’m Sarah Hand, the indie dyer behind One Hand in the Dyepot Yarns. I’ve recently set up my shop and wanted to share my dye philosophy with you all. I have a Master of Science degree and I take a very analytical approach to dyeing. In my colour experiments, I keep track of time and temperature, pH and dye dilutions in my very detailed lab book. This attention to detail allows a level of precision and control with my hand-dyes, and encourages my creative side to test out interesting colour combinations and designs. I believe that yarn dyeing – like most crafty pursuits – requires us to engage both our left and right brains, and that striking a balance can produce inspiring results.
