My first "Slow Color change" HDT ~ TATTING
There seems to be a lot of interest in the variegated threads that have slower more gradual color changes.
So I gave this method a go with the hand dyed tatting thread called "Vickie's Lilacs".
Let me tell you, this method takes twice as much work and time as the regular way I dye, so I am undetermined whether or not this will be a profitable venture.
I guess time will tell...perhaps I'll save this type of dyeing for custom orders.
Anyhow the color changes are 3 times the length of my regular HDT's resulting in a much more gradual transition in color change as the thread is worked up.
This new thread is listed in the shop.
