Looking for Hand Dyed Velvet?

My velvet is stretchy and works wonderfully for traditional rug hooking, appliqué and rug braiding. Adds texture and 'catches' the light'. 

It cuts cleanly with no fraying or shredding and drapes beautifully. 
I dye the off-white velvet using several dye techniques to create solid, mottled, spot and dip dyed effects.

The pieces are 6x30" for $6. 
My cassoulets are spot dyed usually with 3 or more colors and 8x60" for $15. The velvet is organized in color groupings, multi-color and bundles. 

 

I also dye taffeta. It hooks up shiny and knobby, a great contrast to both wool and velvet.Both velvet and taffeta can add extra texture to appliqué and can be used fused or unfused. 


I invite you to visit the gallery page for examples and video page for a short video about cutting and hooking with velvet.

I send a tip sheet with all new orders!
