Feeling a bit down, have just been reading a forum where several members where
A- complaining about how expensive my yarn is
B - complaining that hand-dyers don't dye their own yarn as it is all done in factories.
Wish I was a member of the forum where I could tell them that.......
A- MY YARN IS EXPENSIVE BECAUSE I ONLY BUY THE BEST QUALITY WHICH IS EXPENSIVE AND IT COSTS A LOT MORE TO DYE WITH PLANTS THAN NOT, SOME OF MY DYES COST £6 FOR 25GMS AND A DYEBATH NEEDS 100GMS.
B - I DO ALL MY DYEING AND ITS NOT DYED IN A FACTORY (UNLESS YOU COUNT THE FARM AS A FACTORY).
I would also tell them if you want to spend less money, go ahead and buy cheap nasty yarn that A- the only animals it has seen are the ones the lorry passed on the way from factory to yarn seller.
B - not only is it synthetic but also a potential pollutant due to the various stages it goes through been made.
