Create Elegant Dyed Designs on Silk

Threads #178, April/May 2015

There’s no limit to what you can do using the easy and versatile silk-dying technique described in this article from Threads #178 (April/May 2015) by Deborah Younglao.

Watching beautiful colors spread through lustrous silk is a fascinating experience. With silk fabric as the canvas and liquid dyes as the paint, you can create unique textiles for garments, accessories, or art pieces. Dye becomes part of the fabric, instead of sitting on the surface like paint, so the silk’s natural luminosity shows through and the fabric retains its softness and fluid drape.
