Bundle Dye a Sock Blank with Ria Burns – Saturday 17th October 2020

Learn the bundle dyeing technique to create a naturally unique and colourful British wool sock blank.

Ria Burns is a Bristol based designer who creates sustainable knitwear using local lambswool and dyed with homegrown and foraged plants.

Using a selection of seasonal, homegrown and responsibly foraged flowers and leaves, you will decorate the sock blank (a knitted length of fabric) which we will then roll and tie together before steaming to lock in the colour. Once taken home and dried, these can then be knitted directly from the blank (or wound into a cake) to knit into a pair of socks or other accessory – the unique colour and pattern will reveal itself as you knit with it!

The sock blank has been machine knitted by Ria in a 100% British Corriedale wool yarn developed for socks. It is non-superwash and has no nylon content.

Prepared sock blank, dye materials and handouts are provided but please bring an apron and rubber gloves.
