I just dyed a pound of inca cotton. Two days later, it’s still drying. Does anyone know if I can tie it up well and throw it in the dryer?? This is getting ridiculous.

And speaking of tying it up…a word of advice…if you ever dye inca cotton, re-tie it yourself. Don’t trust the ties that are already there. My skeins are an absolute mess, and I am fearful of trying to wind them.

The process was kind of skeeery (real dye, gloves, chemicals, the whole can of worms) but a good learning experience. Not as purplish as I’d hoped, but no way am I going to overdye it. I don’t think I want to dye cotton again any time soon.
