Product description

Regia for Hand - Dye - 4 ply is an original yarn that will allow you to dye it, creating and combining original projects.

The name “4 ply” refers to the among of threads, which are twisted between them. 

This is a white basic yarn that you can mix with different dyes, creating your own colour combinations, depending on your own projects.

You can dye this wool with industrial dyes from supermarkets, food or natural dyes such as tea or vegetables, soft drinks or juices ... You can use this dyeing technique as an original craft that you can carry out even with the little ones.

How should this wool be dyed?

You must follow different procedures, depending on the product you want you dye the wool. As a general rule, the steps to follow are:

  • Fill a pan with water and pour the colouring. The product should boil between 25-30 minutes.
  • The wool should be rinsed with white vinegar, which will help to prepare the fabric to receive the dye.
  • When the water stops boiling, pour the rinsed wool into the dye and put the pan to boil again. A cover should be placed so that the dye does not evaporate. Let boil about 30 minutes or until the wool has a darker colour.
  • Then, leave to cool.
  • Then, remove the wool gently from the pan and drain it until no more colour is released.

*Warning: all the dying products are different. You should first consult what is the correct way to dye the wool with any product.

Schachenmayr is made of:

  • 75% virgin wool
  • 25% polyamide
