Introduction to Dyeing at Toft Alpaca


After a sell-out workshop earlier in the year at Toft Alpaca we were delighted to be invited back for a second dyeing workshop.

After a lovely night in the Manor House (thank you Shirley!) we had a super day with a really enthusiastic group of students. There were sample cards, skeins, experimentation and lots of colourful loveliness and a delicious lunch (thank you Harriet!). Thank you also to Coral who was completing an internship with Toft and provided us with assistance throughout the day.

And if you’d like to know what it was like on the other side of the dyepots, there’s a great write up (and lots of alpaca cuteness) by Rachel (aka mistress of dyeing emporium Porpoise Fur) here and by the lovely proprietress of Champagne Communications, Champagne and Quiviut’s Alli here.
