Last July I discovered BQUEEEN COLLECTION monthly dye box.
I immediately loved the idea and subscribed
I received my first box at the beginning of August.
WHAT'S IN MY BOX:
100g of DK yarn, ready to dye
3g of natural dye in a cute little cork bottle
stirring utensils, wood spoon and wisk
a paper cup for mixing
surprises in a tiny envelop
I started by preparing the yarn is small skeins of 20g each.
then I started to mix 1 g of the dye with hot water
I put water in a large pot and started heating it up.
Then poured the dye in the pot when water was hot.
Finally put the yarn, skein by skein.
The longer I left the skein in hot water the darker the skein was.
I removed the skein from the pot and let it cool down in warn water in jars all night.
The result was really beautiful gradient!!
The color is beautiful better than I have ever experienced.
This box is great, I can't wait to receive the next one.
