Ever since Amy Zwinkel mentioned dye it's been in my head that I want to do it. I took a BRALETTE DYEING WORKSHOP and it was amazing. I learned the proper steps to dye cotton thus how to dye cotton rope! I am so excited to take my macrame to the next level with color.
The first color I picked to experiment with was a beautiful Teal.
Dyeing rope is a 5 step process:
1. Presoak rope and wring excess water
2. Prepare Dye ( just use the instructions)
3. Dye your rope! (Make sure to use gloves, trust me!)
4. Rise with cold water
5. Air Dry
Here are the results from my first attempt at dyeing rope!
Pro Tip: For these, I designed and created the macrame first and then dyed the rope. I placed plastic wrap over the areas I did not want to be dyed.
