Besides fabric there are also other things you can dye. On the pictures you see some socks I dyed recently. Although you only see one of each on the pictures I dyed complete sets :-). For this I used left over dyes in different color combinations. If you want to do this too, look for socks with a high percentage of cotton. Mine were all above 70%. They don't have to be expensive. I bought mine on Ebay. Is it art: no. Is it fun: yes!
