View Full Version : Do I have to dye bare yarn?

06-05-2007, 12:17 AM
I purchases some bare/natural yarn, thinking I would play w/dying... but I love the natural color... can I still use it like that? Or does dying do something to the yarn that makes it better?

Probably a stupid question.... but it was advertised as dying yarn, or something of the sort.:shrug:

no need to dye - you can knit it undyed!

I bought some of the Knitpicks Bare in laceweight because it was my first lace project and I wanted a nice, light color to be able to see the stitches easily. I still haven't decided if I'll leave it undyed or dye it when my shawl is done-- either way, though, it looks great. :)

Ohhh, so it can be dyed after the fact, as well... hadn't thought of that... Thanks!!
