Baby Hand Dyes
I started sewing and dyeing fabric years before I started dyeing yarn. Then I started a business and only dyed yarn. When I became pregnant, I dyed dozens of onesies, outfits, and blankets in preparation for the little badger's arrival. When Violet was born, I needed to carry her without carrying her, so I bought a Moby wrap. I loved wearing my newborn girl snuggled close. Then April came around and the South Texas temperatures soared past ninety degrees. I thought I would melt beneath that thick black cotton interlock. I bought a beautiful woven wrap. Still melted and the knot was huge. I bought a lighter woven wrap. Still melted. And Violet still wouldn't stand for a stroller, so I needed to get creative.
In my family, if you want something the way you want it, you'd better be prepared to make it. And I wanted my wrap the way I wanted it: lightweight, strong, and richly colored, preferably in deconstructed versions of my yarn colorways. With years of fabric knowledge and fewer years of fiber, spinning, dyeing, and weaving know-how, I went on a fabric hunt. With linen selected and sourced, I dyed.
I ended up with two of the loveliest wraps I'd ever seen. Beyond that, I stayed cool while wearing Violet. The baby was well-supported, my shoulders and back were in fine shape even after all-day wearing. I could wear my wraps with not-mom clothing and not look like an idiot. Conversely, I could wear my wrap over yoga pants, a nursing tank, and flip flops and stay comfortable. And other people liked the wraps too; I could have sold them off my body thirty times in the first two weeks alone. So here we are. If there's demand for dyed linen wraps, linen receiving blankets, linen sashes, and perhaps cotton onesies and sleepers, I'll make them. I'm game.
