I was sent a Dye Box from the folks over at BQueen Collection to try out and give my honest opinion.
What is a Dye Box you ask?
I’ll let BQueen break it down for you:
Our BQueen Collection Dye Box is a simple DIY kit for dyeing your own yarn naturally. By taking out some of the preliminary steps for you, we make it easy yet very rewarding to find color on a bare hank.
WHAT’S IN THE BOX:
At least 100g of quality yarn, ready to dye (we’ll change up the fiber content and yarn weight too!)
Every month is a different surprise yarn color
Natural Dye, already measured out specifically for your yarn in a cute little cork bottle
Your dye tools, consisting of nitrile gloves, stirring utensils, and a paper cup for mixing
What they don’t tell you is how addicting this is. My surprise color was just that — a total surprise. I had no idea the color in the bottle would change so dramatically. Check out the video below for a full reveal of the box and see the color change.
It was so simple and so fun, I loved the process of seeing what I was going to get, not only in the box, but the yarn color that results from the dyeing. The package was so beautiful and well thought out. You really didn’t need anything extra besides the pot to “cook” your yarn in. Now I have a beautiful, high quality hank of yarn to make a project with.
The Dye Box is available as a monthly subscription. This was such a great first dyeing experience, I would love to do it every month.
If you’ve ever wanted to try dyeing, or know someone who does, this would make an awesome gift. I think you will love creating your own custom hank.
They Don’t Just Sell Dye Boxes Either
They also sell crochet hooks!!!
There is a reason they call themselves the BQueen. If you notice the ends of each of the crochet hooks look just like queen pieces from chess. I have one of these on their way and I cannot wait.
You can choose your wood, hook size and topper and they will custom make the hook for you.
And if you notice in the picture, this may be the first wood hook that I know that does this, but they include a thumb rest on the hook so that you can easily orientate yourself without having to look at the hook. Such a great idea. I don’t have any other wood hooks that include this.
Didn’t You Say I Could Get 10% Off And Win A Dye Box?
I’ve been busy this past month remodeling our kitchen, pantry and laundry room (still not done). So, though I did upload the motif of the month yesterday (which was the last day of April), I only had time today to put out a post today. So here is the “April” motif:
This is the Traveling Square Motif and it’s made with super bulky yarn. I used a smaller hook to make it very dense and warm. You can use a larger hook to give more drape to the square.
